Determine if the argument is valid or invalid. Give a reason to justify answer. If it is cold, then you need a coat. You do not need a coat. ∴ It is not cold.

    Well, what does it mean if p implies q? It means either p is false, or q is true, right? Because if p is not false, or p is true, it automatically implies q is true.

    So p is false or q is true. At least one of these must be true, right?

    But you also have the assumption q is false (You do not need a coat)

    p is false OR q is true. At lease one of these statements is true, and it's NOT the second statement, because we assumed q is false. Then it must be the case that the first statement is true (p is false) or (It is not cold)
