## What is meant by logical consequence?

Logical consequence (also entailment) is a fundamental concept in logic, which **describes the relationship between statements that hold true when one statement logically follows from one or more statements**.

## What is the difference between conditional and implication?

If an implication is known to be true, then whenever the hypothesis is met, the consequence must be true as well. This is why **an implication is also called a conditional statement**.

2.3: Implications.

p | q | p⇒q |
---|---|---|

T | T | T |

T | F | F |

F | T | T |

F | F | T |

## Is logic a conditional?

In logic, **a sentence or proposition of the form “If A then B” [in symbols, A ⊃ B] is called a conditional** (sentence or proposition). Similarly, “Whenever A then B” {in symbols, (x) [A(x) ⊃ B(x)]} may be called a general conditional.

## Is logic implication is the same as causal implication?

**Implication is explained by laws of logic** (e.g. modus ponens). Causation is explained by laws of nature (e.g. laws of electricity). Propositions aren’t terms.

## What are examples of logical consequences?

For example, **their bike gets left outside and is stolen** (parents refusing to replace bike, child having to save money for replacement is a logical consequence as child is not demonstrating responsibility.)

## How do you use logical consequences?

Logical consequences are **respectful of the child’s dignity** while punishment often calls upon an element of shame. Logical consequences respond to the misbehavior in ways that preserve the dignity of the child. The message is that the behavior is a problem, not that the child is a problem.

## What is conditional statement in logic?

Definition: A Conditional Statement is… symbolized by p q, it is **an if-then statement in which p is a hypothesis and q is a conclusion**. The logical connector in a conditional statement is denoted by the symbol . The conditional is defined to be true unless a true hypothesis leads to a false conclusion.

## What is a main logical operator?

Every compound statement containing two or more operators has a main operator. This is **the logical operator that has in its range the largest component or components in a compound statement**. Every statement has a truth value, that is, every statement is true or false.

## What is an example of a conditional statement?

Example. Conditional Statement: “**If today is Wednesday, then yesterday was Tuesday.”** Hypothesis: “If today is Wednesday” so our conclusion must follow “Then yesterday was Tuesday.” So the converse is found by rearranging the hypothesis and conclusion, as Math Planet accurately states.

## What is logical causation?

It is logical enough on the surface. Often, it seems clear–absolutely clear–that **a specific action caused a second event to happen**. This is what is known as causation. Many events appear to be the results brought about by identifiable causes, and the human mind is geared to look for these cause/effect relationships.

## What do you mean implication?

: **something that is suggested without being said directly** : something that is implied. [count] I’m offended by his implication that women can’t be good at mathematics. I resent that/your implication!

## Does implication mean consequence?

**“Implication” is wider than “consequence”**. A consequence is a direct result. An implication of an action is something that can be gathered from the action – it could refer to the reason for it, or the possible consequences or effects, or its meaning.

## What are examples of implications?

An implication is something that is suggested, or happens, indirectly. **When you left the gate open and the dog escaped, you were guilty by implication**. Implication has many different senses. Usually, when used in the plural, implications are effects or consequences that may happen in the future.

## What is the difference between implication and effect?

As nouns the difference between implication and effect

is that **implication is (uncountable) the act of implicating while effect is the result or outcome of a cause** see below .

## What is the difference between implication and conclusion?

As nouns the difference between implication and conclusion

is that **implication is (uncountable) the act of implicating while conclusion is the end, finish, close or last part of something**.

## Can implications be positive and negative?

**Globalisation has positive implications for economic growth and employment**. Ratification of the convention would also have positive implications for other forms of arms control and non-proliferation agreements. They have negative as well as positive implications and repercussions that had not been anticipated.
