Let P be the statement where
P: Studying hard for discrete math final
Let Q be the statement, where
Q: Getting A in discrete math final
Definition: "If A is true then B is true." The logical form of this statement is:
\(\displaystyle{A}\rightarrow{B}\)
The given statement is:
"If you study hard for your discrete math final you will get A"
Note that P: Studying hard for discrete math final and Q: Getting A in discrete math final.
The logical form of the given statement is:
\(\displaystyle{P}\rightarrow{Q}\)
The given statements is:
"Jane got an A on her discrete math final. therefore Jane must have studied hard."
"Jane got an A on her discrete math final." Hence the statement Q is true for Jane.
This statement implies that "Jane must have studied hard." Hence P is true.
If Q is true then P is true.
The logical form of the statement is:
\(\displaystyle{Q}\rightarrow{P}\)
From the first statement,
\(\displaystyle{P}\rightarrow{Q}\)
From the second and third statements,
\(\displaystyle{Q}\rightarrow{P}\)
which is not always true.
For example, If the fruit is banana then it is yellow in color. if the fruit is yellow in color one can not assure whether the fruit is a banana.
Hence, converse or inverse error has been made.

Sheila is in Ms. Cai's class . She noticed that the graph of the perimeter for the "dented square" in problem 3-61 was a line . "I wonder what the graph of its area looks like ," she said to her teammates .
a. Write an equation for the area of the "dented square" if xx represents the length of the large square and yy represents the area of the square.
b. On graph paper , graph the rule you found for the area in part (a). Why does a 1st−quadrant graph make sense for this situation? Are there other values of xx that cannot work in this situation? Be sure to include an indication of this on your graph, as necessary.
c. Explain to Sheila what the graph of the area looks like.
d. Use the graph to approximate xx when the area of the shape is 20 square units.

As depicted in the applet, Albertine finds herself in a very odd contraption. She sits in a reclining chair, in front of a large, compressed spring. The spring is compressed 5.00 m from its equilibrium position, and a glass sits 19.8m from her outstretched foot.
a)Assuming that Albertine's mass is 60.0kg , what is \(\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}\), the coefficient of kinetic friction between the chair and the waxed floor? Use \(\displaystyle{g}={9.80}\frac{{m}}{{s}^{{2}}}\) for the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity. Assume that the value of k found in Part A has three significant figures. Note that if you did not assume that k has three significant figures, it would be impossible to get three significant figures for \(\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}\), since the length scale along the bottom of the applet does not allow you to measure distances to that accuracy with different values of k.

When two targets are presented close together in a rapid visual stream, the second target is often missed. Psychologists call this phenomenon the attentional blink (AB). A study published in Advances in Cognitive Psychology (July 2013) investigated whether simultaneous or preceding sounds could reduce AB. Twenty subjects were presented a rapid visual stream of symbols and letters on a computer screen and asked to identify the first and second letters (the targets). After several trials, the subject's AB magnitude was measured as the difference between the percentages of first target and second target letters correctly identified. Each subject performed the task under each of three conditions. In the Simultaneous condition, a sound (tone) was presented simultaneously with the second target; in the Alert condition, a sound was presented prior to the coming of the second target; and in the No-Tone condition, no sound was presented with the second target. Scatterplots of AB magnitude for each possible pair of conditions are shown below as well as the least squares line for each. a. Which pair of conditions produces the least squares line with the steepest estimated slope? b. Which pair of conditions produces the least squares line with the largest SSE? c. Which pair of conditions produces the least squares line with the smallest estímate of σ?
