    If (hypothesis) then (conclusion). Now switch the hypothesis and conclusion, and make it sound like English.

    Very good explanation @mathstudent55 ! Converse: A situation, object, or statement that is the *reverse* or *opposite* of another, or that corresponds to it but with certain terms transposed. What is the opposite of a obtuse angle? *hint* An angle measuring less than 90 degrees is an _____ angle.

    @SnuggieLad You are confusing converse with inverse. Statement: If p then q. Converse: If q then p. Inverse: If not p then not q.
