5.(4pts)

Indicate whether the deductive reasoning used is an example of affirming the hypothesis or denying the conclusion.

The population of a town was 35,700 at the beginning of 1970. If the population decreased 400 people per year, how many people lived in the town at the beginning of 1985?

Determine whether there is a one-to-one correspondence between the two sets. Why or Why not?

{a, b, c, d} and {A, B, C, D} Yes there is a one to one correspondence because there are the same number of items in each set

Determine whether the sets are equal only, equivalent only, both equal and equivalent, or neither equal nor equivalent.

{first, second, third} and {1, 2, 3}
They are equivalent only because they do not have the same exact thing in both sets which is required for them to be equal.
