I don't understand this geometry help. Write the converse of the following true conditional statement. If the converse is false, write a counterexample. If a<10, then a<15 Choices A.If a>10, then a>15;false. counter example: a=12 and a <15 B if a<15, then a<10 false; counterexample:a=12 and a >10 C. If a <15, then a <10;true

    If a<10, then a<15. --> Original Statement p: If a < 10 q: Then a < 15 ---------------- Think of the original statement as p --> q which is read as p implies q.

    Converse of p --> q is this: q --> p Coding back in what q and p represent, the converse would read as: IF a < 15, then a < 10. CONVERSE Is the converse true? @wiztostudy23 Do you think it is true that every number less than 15 MUST be less than 10. Look at you options to figure out which one supports your answer.
