Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Statement: If p then q. Converse: If q then p. Statement: If hypothesis, then conclusion. Converse: If conclusion, then hypothesis. To find the converse of an "if statement", you must first identify the hypothesis and the conclusion. Then switch their positions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Choice C. has "not" added to the hypothesis and the conclusion. Do you see any "not" in the original statement?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Look in the original statement. Here it is: \(\Large \sf If ~a ~number ~is ~a ~whole ~number, ~then ~it ~is ~an ~integer.\) What is the hypothesis? What is the conclusion?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3The hypothesis is red, and the conclusion is green. Do you agree? \(\Large \sf If ~\color{red}{a ~number ~is ~a ~whole ~number}, ~then ~\color{green}{it ~is ~an ~integer}.\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Now switch them. You may need to slightly modify the language for the sentence to make sense. \(\Large \sf If~\color{green}{it ~is ~an ~integer} , ~then ~\color{red}{a ~number ~is ~a ~whole ~number}.\) Now we slightly adjust the language: \(\Large \sf If~\color{green}{~a ~number ~is ~an ~integer} , ~then ~\color{red}{~it ~is ~a ~whole ~number}.\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3No. D again has "not" in it. You were correct before. The answer is B. You can't add "not". You can only switch the hypothesis and the conclusion.
