Correct the error in the statement (3) by rewriting it so it follows from statements...
1 Answer | add yours
(1) and (2) are If - then statements:
p: Janet finishes her homework
q: Janet watches TV
r: Janet eats pretzels
(1) If p, then q. Symbolically, `p->q`
(2) If q , then r. Symbolically, `q->r`
Combining (1) and (2), we get `p->q->r` , or `p->r` .
This transates to
If Janet finishes her homework, she will eat pretzels.
(In the given statement (3) consequent and antecedent are reversed.)
