Thanks all

What type of reasoning did she use?

algebraic reasoning

inductive reasoning

direct reasoning

deductive reasoning

2.For the conditional statement, "if you fly from new york to californi, then you travel from east to west," which other form of the conditional must be true?

The one that is true is :

if you do not travel from east to west, then you do not fly from new york to california

This is the contrapositive to the original conditional

4.

Which statement is true about this argument?

Argument

if a number is divisible by 2, then it is even.

The number 4 is even.

Therefore, the number 4 is divisible by 2.

Let P = a number is divisible by 2

Let Q = the number is even

Then we have the form....

Statement 1 : If P, then Q

Statement 2 : Q

Conclusion : P

This follows the Law of Detachment
