Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, our original statement is if it's raining, then I will take my umbrella IF P THEN Q the negation is if it's not raining, then I will not take my umbrella IF NOT P THEN NOT Q what do we need to do to get the converse of the statement? We need this statement before getting the contrapositive.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh your negation statement is actually the inverse statement the negation statement of if p then q is p and not q but yeah to find the contrapositive you could find the converse of the inverse that should work

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It seems like your book defines it like all the other text I know look at page 18 example 1.4.5. though I don't see anywhere they mention the inverse statement
