3 Section 2-1 If-Then Statements; Converses Homework Page 35: 1-30

4 Objectives A. Identify and properly use conditional statements. B. Identify the hypothesis and conclusion of conditionals. C. Identify and state the converse of a conditional. D. Provide correct counterexamples to prove statements false. E. Identify and use biconditional statements.

5 Conditional Statements We use conditional statements in our everyday language, as well as in our mathematical language. The common form of a conditional statement, or conditional, is: If hypothesis, then conclusion.

6 Hypothesis Conditional Statements According to Merriam-Webster dictionary a tentative assumption made in order to draw out and test its logical or empirical consequences More simply a set of pre-conditions from which we attempt to reach a conclusion. Or the information which must be known in order to apply the conclusion to a problem. In geometry, it is common for the hypothesis to describe a diagram, or to be part of a diagram. Conclusion Information which can be added to a problem when the criteria of the hypothesis have been met.

7 Conditional Statements Conditional statements can be TRUE or FALSE: If they are considered TRUE, they must be TRUE in ALL cases. If there is a SINGLE case where the statement is false, then the ENTIRE conditional is considered FALSE! Examples: If I do not eat, then I will eventually starve. If I live in Bexley, then I live in Ohio. If I add 3 to 4, then I will have 7. If you cheat on homework, then you won t do well in this class. If you want the freedom of an adult, then you must accept adult responsibilities.

8 Other Forms of Conditional Statements Thanks to the English language, you have several other ways of expressing a conditional statement: IF hypothesis, THEN conclusion. hypothesis IMPLIES conclusion. hypothesis ONLY IF conclusion. conclusion IF hypothesis.

9 Equivalent Conditionals: Examples If you live in Ohio, then you live in the United States. You live in Ohio implies that you live in the United States. You live in Ohio only if you live in the United States. You live in the United States if you live in Ohio. 4

10 Say it ain t so! A major outcome of your work in this class will be your ability to prove or disprove conditionals. Remember, a conditional is always true or it is false, there is no sometimes this, sometimes that. To prove a conditional or theorem to be true usually takes a number of steps. The proof MUST show that the statement to be true for ALL cases. To prove something is false we need ONLY ONE example where the hypothesis contradicts the conclusion. Such an example is known as a counterexample: A counterexample proves a conditional false by agreeing with the hypothesis but disagreeing with the conclusion.

11 Counterexamples If it is a week night, then you have geometry homework. Counterexample December 25 th may be a week night this year, but you don t have geometry homework on Christmas. This statement agrees with the hypothesis, but disagrees with the conclusion. Since we have found one counterexample for the conditional we say the conditional is false. If we find at least one counterexample that proves the conditional false, it makes no difference how many examples we can find where it is true. Because the conditional was false once, it may be false again. So the conditional has no value in predicting the future or judging the present. 4

12 Converse of a Conditional converse: The converse of a conditional is another if-then statement formed by interchanging the hypothesis and the conclusion of a given statement. Conditional statement If p then q Converse of above statement If q then p Example: Conditional If tomorrow is Saturday, then today is Friday. Converse If today is Friday, then tomorrow is Saturday.

13 Converses of Conditionals NOTE! Just because the conditional statement is true does NOT make the converse of the statement true! Likewise, just because the converse of a statement is true does not make the conditional true. Example: Conditional If I have 2 dimes and a nickel, then I have 25 cents. Converse If I have 25 cents, I have 2 dimes and a nickel. Remember, you need only ONE counterexample to prove a statement false.

14 Biconditionals For a statement to be biconditional, both the original conditional (statement) and its converse must be true. One sign that you have a biconditional statement is the key phrase if and only if to connect the parts of the statement. In a biconditional, the order of the phrases can be switched without changing the meaning.

15 Biconditional Example Conditional If I draw a right angle, then I draw a 90 degree angle. Converse If I draw a 90 degree angle, then I draw a right angle. Biconditional I draw a right angle if and only if I draw a 90 degree angle.

16 Definitions Written as Biconditionals An angle is acute if and only if it measures between 0 and 90. An angle measures between 0 and 90 if and only if the angle is acute. A ray bisects an angle if and only if it divides the angle into two congruent adjacent angles. A ray divides the angle into two congruent adjacent angles if and only if the ray bisects an angle. Points are collinear if and only if the points lie on one line. Points lie on one line if and only if the points are collinear. 3

17 Recommendations When it is possible, I HIGHLY recommend that you reword any definitions, postulates, and theorems in their biconditional form. In all other cases, I HIGHLY recommend you reword any definitions, postulates, and theorems in their IF/THEN form.

18 Section 2-1 Sample Problems Write the hypothesis and the conclusion of each conditional. 1. If 3x - 7 = 32, then x = 13 If 3x - 7 = 32, then x = I ll try if you will. I ll try if you will. 5. a + b = a implies b = 0. a + b = a implies b = 0.

19 Section 2-1 Sample Problems Rewrite each pair of conditionals as a biconditional. 7. If B is between A and C, then AB + BC = AC. If AB + BC = AC, then B is between A and C. B is between A and C if and only if AB + BC = AC. AB + BC = AC if and only if B is between A and C. Write each biconditional as two conditionals that are converses of each other. 9. Points are collinear if and only if they all lie on one line. If points are collinear, then they all lie on one line. If points all lie on one line, then they are collinear.

20 Sample Problems Section 2-1 Provide a counterexample to show that each statement is false. You may use words or diagrams. 11. If ab < 0, then a < 0. Let a = 2 and b = -3. Therefore, ab = -6. In this case, ab < 0 (agrees with hypothesis), but a > 0 (disagrees with conclusion). 13. If point G is on AB, then G is on BA. 15. If a four sided figure has four right angles, then it has four congruent sides.

21 Sample Problems Section 2-1 Tell whether each statement is true or false. Then write the converse and tell whether it is true or false. 17. If x = - 6, then x = 6. True If x = 6, then x = -6. False, x = If b > 4, then 5b > If Pam lives in Chicago, then she lives in Illinois. 23. a 2 > 9 if a > 3.

22 25. n > 5 only if n > 7. Sample Problems Section If points D, E and F are collinear, then DE + EF = DF. 29. Write a definition of congruent angles as a biconditional.

23 Section 2-2 Properties from Algebra Homework Pages 41-42: 1-14

24 Objectives A. Properly use and describe algebraic properties. B. Relate the algebraic properties to geometric properties. C. Properly apply geometric properties.

25 Algebraic Properties of Equality: Transformations Addition: You may add the same value to both sides of an equation. If a = b, then a + c = b + c. Subtraction (add a negative): You may subtract the same value from both sides of an equation. If a = b, then a - c = b - c. Multiplication: You may multiply the same value to both side of an equation. If a = b, then a * c = b * c.

26 Algebraic Properties of Equality: Transformations Division (multiply by a reciprocal): You may divide the same value into both sides of an equation. If a = b, then a / c = b / c. HOWEVER: c cannot be zero! Distribution: You may multiply a factor next to a grouping symbol to every term inside the grouping symbol. If a (b + c + d) = e, then ab + ac + ad = e. Substitution: Left and right sides of an equation are interchangeable. Either statement may be used in another equation. If a + b = c AND d e = c, then: a + b = d e

27 Algebraic Properties of Equality: Transformations Reflexive: A value must equal itself. a = a Symmetric: The left and right sides of an equation can be switched. If a = b, then b = a. Transitive: Any two values in a chain of equality are equal. If a = b AND If b = c. then a = c.

28 But what about GEOMETRIC properties? Remember, we cannot talk about two FIGURES being EQUAL! Two geometric figures can be CONGRUENT. So certain properties, such as the Addition Property of Equality, cannot be applied to figures. However, SOME algebraic properties can be applied to figures. Lengths of line segments and measures of angles are real numbers. Therefore, we can apply algebraic properties of equalities (such as the Addition Property) to these real numbers.

29 Properties of Congruence Reflexive: Any object must be congruent (same size and shape) to itself. DE DE D D Symmetric: The objects on the left and right sides of a congruence statement may be switched. If If DE D FG E then FG DE. then E D. Transitive: Any two objects in a chain of congruence statements are congruent (same size and shape). If DE FG and FG JK then DE JK. If D E and E F then D F.

30 So, what do we do with these properties? We use these algebraic and geometric properties to prove statements. For example: If 3X + 5 = 17, then X = 4. 3X + 5 (- 5) = 17 (- 5) 3X = 12 3X 12X X X = 4 Given. Subtraction Property of Equality. Division Property of Equality. Symmetric Property of Equality.

85 Producing a Proof All proofs you will produce will be two-column proofs, regardless of the directions in the book. Therefore, if the book says produce a paragraph proof, you will instead produce a two-column proof. All two-column proof should appear as a two-column table The left column will be the statements column. The right column will be the reasons column. Statements Reasons

86 Statements: Parts of a Two Column Proof Each statement should be numbered and supported in the reason column. The first statement is a list of the given information found in the hypothesis of the conditional or from information in a diagram. The body of the proof consists of a logical series of statements and reasons flowing from the givens and from information that can be proved from the diagram. The last statement must be what you were required to prove, found in the conclusion of the conditional.

87 Reasons: Parts of a Two Column Proof Each reason should be numbered so that it matches the statement it supports. The first reason will be given provided that the first statement was a list of the given information. Only given, definitions, postulates, algebraic properties, theorems and their corollaries are acceptable reasons for the body of the proof. The final reason will depend upon the logical structure of the whole proof, but it still must come from the list above (except that it cannot be given ).

88 Each Row in the Two-column Proof Remember! For each row in the proof: The hypothesis in the reason must be shown to be true in preceding statements. The conclusion in the reason must match the statement. Writing all definitions, postulates, properties, theorems and corollaries as standard if-then conditionals will make this a lot easier! C A O B D Statements Reasons 1. Given lines AB and CD are perpendicular and intersect at point O. 1. Given 2. Angle BOC is a right angle. 2. If two lines are perpendicular then they intersect at right angles.

89 Steps for Writing a Two Column Proof Step 1: Identify the conditional you are required to prove. Step 2: Draw, label, and annotate a diagram for the proof. Step 3: List from the conditional, in terms of the figure, what is given. This is the first statement/reason in the proof. Step 4: Determine from the conditional, in terms of the diagram, what is to be proven. This will be the last statement in the proof. Step 5: List from the diagram, in terms of the figure, what can be proven and why. Step 6: Select and arrange, in a logical order, those statements from steps 3, 4 & 5 that will allow you to move from the given information to the statement to be proved. N.B. If you get stuck writing the proof from the top down, then work up from the conclusion by deciding what you had to know to make that statement. 22 N
