"Conditional" statement

"ifthen" statement
if xxxxx, then yyyy if "hypothesis", then "conclusion. 

Q: Truth value of conditional statement

True  everytime the hypothesis is true, then the conclusion is also true.
False  show that ONLY ONE counterexample showing hypothesis true and conclusion is false 

Q: Hypothesis and Conclusion within a conditional statement.

Hypothesis is the "if" part;
Conclusion is the "then" part. 

Converse of a Conditional statement

Reverse the if, then parts.
conditional: if xxx, then yyy. converse: if yyy, then xxx. 

Biconditional statement.

The statement you get by connecting the conditional and it's converse with "and".
The "converse" IF AND ONLY IF the "conditional" 

Deductive (logical) reasoning

The process of reasoning logically from given statements to reach a conclusion.


Law of Detachment

If a conditional is true and it's hypothesis is true, then it's conclusion is true.


(23)
Law of Syllogism 
If p, then q AND if q, then r are true
THEN if p, then r is also true. (23) 

(23)Symbolic way of writing a conditional statement

p > q.
means; if p , then q. 

(23)
Q: Description of Law of Syllogism 
allows you to state a conclusion from 
 two true conditional statements, when the conclusion of one statement is the hypothesis of the other 

(23)
Q: What types of statements make up the law of syllogism 
two conditional statements:
conditional (p > q) conditional (q > r) 

Q: write the law of syllogsm (23) given:
if a number is prime, then it does not have repeated factors. if a number does not have repeated factors, then it is not a perfect square. 
p  number is prime
q  does not have repeated factors r  is not a perfect square. if a number is prime, then it is not a perfect square 

(24)
Addition property 
if a=b, then a+c = b+c


(24)
Subtraction property 
if a=b, then ac = ab


24
multiplication property 
if a=b, then a*b = b*c


(24)
division property 
if a=b and c NE 0, then a/c  b/c


(24)
reflexive property 
a=a


(24) Symmetric property

if a=b, then b=a


(24) Transitive property

if a=b and b=c, then a=c


(24) substitution property

if a=b, then b can replace a in any expression


(24) distributive property

a (b+c) = ab + ac
41 = 40+1 3(41) = 3(40) + 3(1). 

(24 distributive property

ab + ac = a(b+c)
a is distributed across b & c. 

(21) angle addition postulate

the sum of the small angles making a large angle = the large angle.


(21) angle bisector

A line bisecting (i.e. cutting in half) an angle results in two equal angles whos sum equals the original angle.


(21) segment addition postulate

the sum of the small segments making a large segment = the large segment.


(24) reflexive property

line ab CG to line ab
angle a CG to angel a 

(24) symmetric property

if line ab CG to cd, then cd is CG to ab.
if angle a CG to angle B, then angle B CG angle A 

25
q: paragraph proof 
a proof written as sentences in a paragraph.


25
q: theorem 
the statement that you prove, via a set of steps


25
q:proof 
a series of steps , using deductive reasoning.


25
q: postulate 
a proposition that is accepted as true in order to provide a basis for logical reasoning
(A selfevident or universally recognized truth) 

25
q: what are the steps in making a proof. 
1) list everything that is given.
2) list what you must show (prove). 3) list the steps (assumptions, postulates) to get to the proof). 

25
q: What is the vertical angles theorem? 
Vertical angles are congruent.


25:
q: prove that vertical angles are congruent. 
given:
L1 and L2 are vertical angels prove: L1 = L2 steps L1 +L3 = 180 angle addition p L2 +L3 = 180 angle addition p L1 +L3 = L2+L3 subs L1 = L2 sub L3 both sides 

25
q: if 2 angles are supplements of the same angle (or of congruent angles), then the 2 angles are congruent. 
given:
L1 and L2 are suppl. L3 and L2 are suppl prove: L1 = L3 steps: L1 + L2 = 180 defn suppl L2 + L3 = 180 defn supp L1 + L2 = L2+L3 subst L1 + L3 subtr L2 

q:
25 how is a theorem different than a postulate 
A postulate is assumed true.
A theorem is proven true by steps based on deductive reasoning. 

q:
is this a good definition? why not. A pencil is a writing instrument 
Conditional
if a pencil is an instrument than it is for writing. Converse: if it is used for writing it is an instrument. 

q: what makes a "good" definition  3 items

1) uses clearly understood or defined terms.
2) precise (not large, sort of, almost..). 3) reversible  can write it as a biconditional. 4) no counterexamples. 

q: what is meant by reversible

can be written as a true biconditional.
the conditional and the converse are true. p if and only if q. 

q: write the statements that form the biconditonal for:
two angles are congruent if and only if they have the same measure 
if two angles are congruent, then they have the same measure.
if two angles have the same measure than they are congruent. 

q: is this a good definition  why / why not.
A cat is an animal with whiskers. 
NO.
A counterexample is a dog which has whiskers. if an animal is a cat than it has whiskers. if an animal has whiskers it is a cat.
