## ashleysmith 3 years ago Whats the law of detachment and law of syllogism for this conditional: " If you shop at Walmart, then you will save money and live better"

1. ashleysmith

is the answer for law of syllogism this - if you will save money and live better then you are happy.

2. ashleysmith

is that correct..lol ^^^^

3. swissgirl

wait noooo you gotta end of saying If you shop in walmart then you are happy

4. swissgirl

Right the law goes as follow $$p \to q$$ and $$q \to r$$ sooo $$p \to r$$

5. swissgirl

So if you shop at walmart then you will save money and live better. If you will save money and live better then you will be happy So If you shop at walmart then you will be happy

6. swissgirl

The law of detachment is If p→q and p is true, then q is true. If you shop at walmart then you will save money and live better So if you shop at walmart is true then the second half of the statement is true which is then you will save money and live a better life

7. ashleysmith

8. swissgirl
