Converse

My Definition

Key Characteristics

The following are true of a converse:

- It begins with a conditional statement and is written in an
*if-then*format. - The
*if*and*then*parts change places from the conditional statement. - The truth of the conditional statement doesn't guarantee the truth of the converse.

Example

Non-example

- This is the conditional statement: if it is raining outside, then the baseball game will be delayed.
- This is the inverse of the conditional statement: if it is not raining outside, then the baseball game will not be delayed.
- This is the contrapositive of the conditional statement: if the baseball game is not delayed, then it is not raining outside.
- This is the biconditional of the conditional statement: the baseball game will be delayed if and only if it is raining outside.
