Let's take a look at how to solve logic questions, so you typically see logic questions whenyou're in the beginning of your geometry coursein high school.

So logic refers to, particularlyin your geometry book, logic refers to whenyou look at the hypothesis, and the conclusionof a statement.

So here's an example. Thehypothesis might be if you study, so the hypothesis, hypothesis means like a guess or a statementyou're making guessing at something.

So yousay if you study, that's setting it up, andthen it would say then, so actually the hypothesisby the way doesn't include the if, it's thething after the if.

And then your conclusionis the thing after the then. So if you study, then what? If you study, then you'll get anA.

So if you study, is the hypothesis, we'remaking a guess, we're making a conclusion, or we're saying what's going to happen, theresult.

Then you'll get an A. So geometryclass, you're going to be asked to switchthese around to play with them.

One thingyou might be asked to do is to do the converse. So the converse is just when you swap thehypothesis and conclusion.

And that's whythe if and the then aren't really a part ofthem, they're not getting swapped. So we'regoing to keep our if, but we're going to writeour conclusion here.

We're going to say if, take this guy, and bring it right there. Ifyou get an A, and now our new conclusion is, then, we take our hypothesis, and we put ithere.

We just swapped. So if you get an A, then you studied. Now not every statement, not every if then statement, not every logicstatement is true.

If you study then you willget an A, hopefully that's true, but it mightnot be. If you got an A, then you studied.

That may not be true either, so this is nota true statement. And here is the originalstatement, the conditional statement it'scalled in logic, and here is the converse, that's the converse of the statement wherewe switch the hypothesis and the conclusion.
