Let statements p, q, r, and s be as follows: (< stands for the angle sign) p:

myininaya (myininaya):

a) p <=> s

myininaya (myininaya):

you are just replacing a group of words with a letter

OpenStudy (anonymous):

c continued) <A and <B are a linear pair. d) if <A and <B are adjacent and supplementary angles, then <A and <B are a linear pair

myininaya (myininaya):

b) p=>s

OpenStudy (anonymous):

is the answer a or b?

myininaya (myininaya):

i'm just reading the statements below in writing them using symbols

OpenStudy (anonymous):

whats the answer? (:

myininaya (myininaya):

Substitute p, q, r, or s, and write the statement the way you would read it.

myininaya (myininaya):

i'm doing this because this is what you said to do

myininaya (myininaya):

now you try writing c and d using symbols

OpenStudy (anonymous):

i dont knwo how

myininaya (myininaya):

try c

myininaya (myininaya):

what does the first part of the sentence say before the if and only if part

OpenStudy (anonymous):

<A and <B are adjacent and supplemetary angles

myininaya (myininaya):

ok so what statement is that p, q, r, or s?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

s

OpenStudy (anonymous):

is it s<=>p?

myininaya (myininaya):

ok so we have s <=> ? what statement is ?

myininaya (myininaya):

yes thats right

myininaya (myininaya):

now we do the last sentence and then we will say which of the sentences are true

OpenStudy (anonymous):

is d s<=>p?

myininaya (myininaya):

no its not if and only if

myininaya (myininaya):

s=>p

OpenStudy (anonymous):

what do i do now?

myininaya (myininaya):

now you do detemine which is true: a,b,c,or d now a linear pair are two angles that are supplementary and adjacent

myininaya (myininaya):

p<=>s is the right choice

myininaya (myininaya):

or it goes the other way to since we have if and only if s <=>p same as p <=>s

OpenStudy (anonymous):

is the answer a b c or d?

myininaya (myininaya):

the answer is p <=>s or you could also say s <=> p

OpenStudy (anonymous):

but is that a b c or d? it needs to be one of these

myininaya (myininaya):

right it is one of them i just told you the answer was s<=>p lol

myininaya (myininaya):

i don't understand your confusion

myininaya (myininaya):

you remember how we went through each one of them and wrote them in symbols for which one did we write s<=>p or p<=>s ?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes i got it

myininaya (myininaya):

ok great
