Geometry Oldie but Goodie


If they're in yellow....

If the students are in yellow, then they are sophomores!
                                                                      (CONDITIONAL STATEMENT)





 

 (INVERSE)
 If the students are NOT in yellow, then they are NOT sophomores.
                                                                                                                              







Statement: If the students are in yellow, then they are sophomores!
 



(CONVERSE - same terms, reverse the connection)  
 If they are sophomores, then the students are in yellow. 
                                                                                   







  Statement: If the students are in yellow, then they are sophomores!    




(CONTRAPOSITIVE)  

 If the students are NOT sophomores, then they are NOT in yellow.
                                                                                                          


 a BICONDITIONAL STATEMENT = conditional + converse
IF AND ONLY IF.......

The student is a sophomore, IF AND ONLY IF the student is wearing yellow.
True or False?


Geometry Rocks!
