    Please answer ONLY if you know.

    In Logic (Math), what is Logically equivaklent to this conditional:

    If the team has a good pitcher, then the team has a good season?


    I think it would be the contrapostive: "If the team does not have a good season, then the team does not have a good pitcher"

    but I am not sure...I forgot :S: ...

    In order to find the logical equivalent, Ahmed, construct a truth table for the original statement. The order in your last column would be the way the logically equivalent statements' last column would look like...This helps?
