Write the contrapositive of the conditional statement and then determine if the conditional statement and the contrapositive are true or false. If 6x ≠ 24, then x ≠ 4. A. If x ≠ 4, then 6x ≠ 24. The conditional statement and the contrapositive are both false. B. If x = 4, then 6x = 24. The conditional statement is false, and the contrapositive is true. C. If x = 4, then 6x = 24. The conditional statement and the contrapositive are both true. D. If 6x = 24, then x = 4. The conditional statement and the contrapositive are both tr

    Given a conditional statement A⇒B, its contrapositive is ¬B⇒¬A, where ¬A is the negation of A. As for why both are true. consider the statement itself. If x=4, then 6x=24 must be true. If 6x≠24, then x can't be 4, otherwise you have equality.
