Read the statements shown below: If a closed figure has three line segments joined end to end, it is a triangle. If all the three angles of a triangle are congruent, it is an equilateral triangle. Morgan constructed a triangle with all three sides congruent in the geometry class. Based on the given statements, which is a valid argument?

t cannot be concluded that Morgan drew an equilateral triangle. It can be concluded that Morgan drew a closed figure having three congruent line segments joined end to end. It cannot be concluded that Morgan drew a closed figure having three line segments joined end to end. It can be concluded that Morgan drew a rectangle.

@mathmate what do you think?

@HareshGopal Notice that the question says "based on the above statements". I interpret it as, "based on the above statements ONLY", then we know that with three \(angles\) equal it is an equilateral triangle (correct name is equiangular triangle) What morgan had was a triangle with three \(sides\) equal. So do you think we can drawa conclusion (based on the given statements ONLY? We know we can prove that an equiangular triangle is equilateral, but that is not given.

Think of the question: Given statement: If I take a bus, I pay the fare. Morgan takes a taxi. \(Based~on~the~above~statements,\) 1. We cannot conclude that Morgan pays the fare. 2. We can conclude that Morgan pays the fare 3. We can conclude that Morgan has a lot of money. 4. We cannot conclude that Morgan has a lot of money. What would be your answer?

Exactly. The law of detachment says: If the hypothesis is satisfied, the conclusion is true. However, if the hypothesis (getting in a bus) is not satisfied, we cannot draw the conclusion (pay the fare), EVEN though we know (from outside the problem) that he pays the fare.

@mathmate so what about my question, am I correct?

This: It can be concluded that Morgan drew a closed figure having three congruent line segments joined end to end.

@mathmate ??????

The first statement says: If a closed figure has three line segments joined end to end, it is a triangle. the hypothesis is "a closed figure has three line segments joined end to end" and the conclusion is "it is a triangle". By the law of detachment, IF the hypothesis is true, then the conclusion (it is a triangle) is true. The statement did not say that the converse is true. The converse is: If a figure is a triangle, then it is a closed figure has three line segments joined end to end So we cannot assume that this last statement is true. "Morgan constructed a triangle with all three sides congruent in the geometry class. " only tells us that Morgan constructed a triangle. Without the converse being true, we cannot conclude that: "Morgan drew a closed figure having three congruent line segments joined end to end" Therefore the statement It can be concluded that Morgan drew a closed figure having three congruent line segments joined end to end. is not logically true (unless the converse is true).

@HareshGopal I would agree with that, because Morgan drew three equal sides, and not three equal angles.
