    For 10, my teacher corrected it because there was a mistake (all the answers are wrong). 10. If a shape is a rectangle then it has 4 right angles. A If a shape is not a rectangle, then it does not have 4 right angles. TRUE B If a shape is not a rectangle, then it does not have 4 right angles, FALSE C If a shape does not have 4 right angles, then it is not a rectangle, TRUE D If a shape has does not have 4 right angles, then it is not a rectangle, FALSE It's that instead and I choose C.

    For number 10, I'm looking for the contrapositive. Why is 17 incorrect? I made the sentence into a conditional statement and then in 18 I said that the conditional statement was false.

    think about it if I told you that "If an animal has four legs, then it is a dog" would what I'm saying be true or false?

  30. LifeIsADangerousGame
    • 2 years ago

    It would be false.

    But the one I chose says that: "If an animal is a dog, then it has four legs." And I said that (in Q 20) that that was true.

    ok now go back to the original statement "A dog is an animal with four legs" is that true or false?

    That is true

    "A dog is an animal with four legs" is true but you said that the above translates to "If an animal has four legs, then it is a dog" which is false (a cat has four legs is a counter-example)

  36. jim_thompson5910

    so the two statements "A dog is an animal with four legs" and "If an animal has four legs, then it is a dog" are logically not equivalent

  37. LifeIsADangerousGame

    Right, but then the converse of it "If an animal is a dog, then it has four legs." would be true right?

    "A dog is an animal with four legs" translates to "If an animal is a dog, then it has four legs." both of which are true statments

    19. What is the converse of the statement? A If an animal is not a dog, then it does not have four legs B If an animal has four legs, then it is not a dog C If an animal does not have four legs, then it is not a dog D If an animal is a dog, then it has four legs. If an animal has four legs, then it is a dog isn't in there so the only one that is actually a conversed conditional statement would be D which is true

    Wait, why is 17 C? I know it's not B or D because those aren't conditional statements, but why would it be C?

  47. jim_thompson5910

    because "A dog is an animal with four legs" and "If an animal is a dog, then it has four legs." are both true statements

    For each statement below (#’s 6-9) write the converse of the statement and determine if the converse is true or false. 6. If a shape is a rectangle then it is a parallelogram. A If a shape is not a rectangle, then it is not a parallelogram TRUE B If a shape is not a rectangle, then it is not a parallelogram, FALSE C If a shape is a parallelogram, then it is a rectangle, TRUE D If a shape is a parallelogram then it is a rectangle, FALSE I think #6 should've been D instead. Because a square is a rectangle ( I think), but a rectangle is not a square.

    It is kinda weird, I'm going to have to talk to my teacher during office hours. #19 was 19. What is the converse of the statement? A If an animal is not a dog, then it does not have four legs B If an animal has four legs, then it is not a dog C If an animal does not have four legs, then it is not a dog D If an animal is a dog, then it has four legs. I chose D for 19 forgetting that I had change my answer for 17 (which made it so that they were the same statement and not conversed). But none of the other answers are correctly conversed..
