###
Conclusion

In a conditional statement, the statement that immediately follows the word then.

###
Conditional Statement

A statement of the form "If A, then B." The part following if is called the hypothesis. The part following then is called the conclusion.

###
Conjecture

An educated guess.

###
Contrapositive

The statement formed by negating both the hypothesis and conclusion of the converse of a conditional statement.

###
Converse

The statement formed by interchanging the hypothesis and the conclusion of a conditional statement.

###
Counterexample

An example used to show that a given general statement is not always true.

###
Hypothesis

In a conditional statement, the statement that immediately follows the word if.

###
Inductive reasoning

Reasoning that uses a number of specific examples to arrive at a plausible generalization or prediction. Conclusions arrived at by inductive reasoning lack the logical certainty of those arrived at by deductive reasoning.

###
Inverse

The denial of a statement.

###
Law of Detachment

If p-->q is a true conditional and p is true, then q is true.

###
Law of Syllogism

If p-->q and q-->r are true conditionals, then p-->r is also true.

###
Deductive Reasoning

reasoning used to reach conclusions that must be true wherever the assumptions on which the reasoning is based are true

###
If - Then Statement

a compound statement of the form "If A, then B," where A and B are statements

###
Negation

to deny a statement is to negate a statement, (logic) a proposition that is true if and only if another proposition is false

###
Proof

a formal series of statements showing that if one thing is true something else necessarily follows from it

###
Two Column Proof

a type of proof written as numbered statements and reasons that show the logical order of an argument

###
Venn Diagram

A diagram that uses circles to display elements of different sets. Overlapping circles show common elements.

###
Addition and Subtraction Properties

If a = b, then a + c = b + c

If a = b, then a - c = b - c

###
Distributive property

a(b + c) = ab + ac

###
Multiplication and Division Properties

for all numbers a, b, and c if a=b then a**c=b**c and if c does not equal 0 then a/c=b/c

###
Substitution Property

If a=b, then a can be substituted for b in any equation or expression

###
Symmetric Property

if a=b, then b=a

###
Transitive Property

If a=b and b=c, then a=c

###
Segment Addition Postulate

If B is between A and C, then AB+BC=AC

###
Supplement Theorem

If two angles form a linear pair, then they are supplementary angles,, Supplements of congruent angles are congruent

###
Linear Pair

a pair of adjacent angles whose non-common sides are opposite rays

###
congruent segments

Segments that have the same length

###
vertical angles

A pair of opposite congruent angles formed by intersecting lines.
