Studying for the LSAT / Re: Formal Logic Problem giving me trouble
« on: April 20, 2007, 04:26:05 PM »
harvardorbust, I'm not understanding your inferences.  I really only understand formal logic using the some and most trains as described in powerscore.

I understand how you got T ---->M<--m--S which includes T---->M<--s-->S (most includes inference some right?) and T---->M---->D

However, your final inferences I can't understand.

T<--s-->S (How did you get this inference?  Starting at T, to then take a train away from M, I thought you could only use a double arrow, double not arrow, or all arrow because some and most arrows do not count because they do not necessarily include the entire group (page 322 of Logic Reasoning Bible).

I'm sorry for being all technical, but I can only understand formal logic using this method.  If you could please help I would REALLY appreciate it.



Listen pal; you don't need a diagram to make an inference for this; we see that some S is older than M (that's our inference from "most"; but we also know that all T are older than M; but since some S is older than M and not all, we can assume that some S are not as old as T because all T are older than M and only some S are older than M;

Thx Syzer.

And Piggy, I agree that your answer was fine. It's just that I have seen a couple of LSAT problems that made similar distinctions so I thought I would point it out to Syzer so that he would be vary of such cases.

Umm. Does that pig have TWO SNOUTS AND ONE EYE?! Haha. I just noticed that!! WTH?!?! I thought it was one of those "mirror" images. FREAKY!!

PS: rmkrause, that's exactly how I diagrammed it on the test. :)


you have to thank me actually  :P

1. All tulip trees are older than the maples.
2. NOT ALL of the sycamores are older than the maples.

2 means that some of the sycamores are younger than some of the maples, right?  So if all of the tulip trees are older than the maples, some of the sycamores must be younger than all of the tulip trees.

hth.

Actually Piggy, that's not entirely correct reasoning. Sorry if it seems like I'm nitpicking but you have to be careful about these things on the LSAT.

Statement #2 says that some of the sycamores are not older than any maple tree. You cannot assume that the sycamores are younger than some of the maples. It could be the case that every sycamore that is not older than any maple is actually the same age as the maple tree.


Thanks for explanation man
They are so thorough;keep it up please

Studying for the LSAT / Re: why ziplocks?
« on: April 20, 2007, 12:21:02 PM »


I just imagined myself carrying a ziplock on subway on my way to a writing centre. I can tell you that that would the most embarrassing moment of my life if any of my peers see me with a ziplock
you can always do it Las Vegas style
like when you take beer into strip clubs that dont serve but allow you to have it
it just has to be in a brown paper bag at the door, and there is usually a trash can for the brown bag near the entrance
except you wont have to pay the doorman $20 for the paper bag at the door  ;)


ROFLLLLLll
