For each example (which i will post one at a time), make a conclusion if it is possible, if not possible explain why. 1.) Lucio is a baker and knows that if a cookie is burnt, it was cooked for too long. Lucio tests the first batch of cookies and finds the are burnt. Lucio tests the second batch of cookies and finds that the temperature was too high.

    Ok I'm guessing the answer to this first one is that it's not possible because the conclusion is completely different from the hypothesis. The hypothesis says "cooked to long" whereas the conclusion says "temperature was too high". Please help me be sure of my answer then i will post the next one.

    I agree that no conclusion is possible here. You've got "If A then B" where: A is "cookie is burnt" B is "cooked for too long" But, you're right, nothing in sight about temperature (yet... )
