the (blank) is the if part of a onditional that translates into the given information
hypothesis
the (blank) is the then part of a conditional that becomes the prove state of a proof
conclusion
~p is called the
negation
p-->q is called the
conditional
q-->p is caled the
converse
~p-->~q is called the
inverse
~q-->~p is called the
contrapositive
a (blank) is an educated guess
hypothesis
if p-->q is true then a specific p is true then q is ture. this is called
law of detachment
if p-->q and q-->r is true then p-->r is true. this is called
law of syllogism
it the 6 corresponding parts of two triangles are congruent then the triangles are
congruent
