Reply To: Translating conditional statement

Hi Mike,

I also have questions about the translating conditional statements drill in the trainer.

I don’t understand why “T–>W” goes against the original rule of “I only work on Tuesdays.” Doesn’t this statement say “If it’s Tuesday, I must go to work?” I think I’m failing to see how the translated statement applies to the original.

Additionally, for the correct statement “W–>T,” could this be translated as “If I go to work, it must be Tuesday?” I think I understand how going to work on Wednesday would violate this rule, but I’m not certain. I think I might just be confusing myself with this particular issue.

I didn’t have much of an issue with conditional logic in the earlier logic games lessons, but with lesson 18 (and the subsequent sufficient assumption drill set) I seem to be having some trouble. Thanks very much for your help.
