    Using symbolic logic: Let p represent: a number is a multiple of 64 q represent: the number is a multiple of 8. So, If a number is a multiple of 64, then it is a multiple of 8 translates symbolically to: P -->q which is read p implies q, or If p, then q.

    If a number is a multiple of 64, then it is a multiple of 8. If a number is a multiple of 8, then it is a multiple of 2. is the given information Therefore, from above (1) p -->q and (2) q -->r Therefore, p -->r. Coding back for what p and r represent: Conclusion: If a number is a multiple of 64, then it is a multiple of 2.
