These three techniques are used to prove statements of the form If then As we know most theorems and propositions have this conditional form or they can be reworded to have this form Thus the three main techniques are quite important But some theo ID: 5836 Download Pdf

The basic idea is to assume that the statement we want to prove is false and then show that this assumption leads to nonsense We are then led to conclude that we were wrong to assume the statement was false so the statement must be true As an examp

Introduction to Proofs. A . proof. is a valid argument that establishes the truth of a statement.. Previous section discussed . formal. proofs. Informal. proofs are common in math, CS, and other disciplines.

In a direct proof you start with the hypothesis of a statement and make one deduction after another until you reach the conclusion.. Indirect proofs are more roundabout. One kind of indirect proof, .
