Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Using 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Looking at the second given implication: If a number is a multiple of 8, then it is a multiple of 2.  Once again, q represents: the number is a multiple of 8. and Let r represent the number is a multiple of 2 Then, the second implicated is represented symbollically as: q >r

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If 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.
