Translate the following argument into symbolic form and determine wheter it's logically correct by constructing a truth table.
If the team wins, then the team remains in the playoffs. If the team stays in the playoffs, then the championship is within reach. Therefore, if the team wins, the championship is within reach.

  • math - ,

    let t = team wins

    let r = team remains in playoffs

    let c be championship within reach

    let } = If x then y (The if, then part)

    let :; = therefore

    Thus,

    t } r
    r } c
    :;t } c

    This is a pure hypothetical statement.

    FYI in the argument t } r, t is the antecedent and r is the consequent.

    thus the argument is valid.
