    Random Question.... :P

    O.k. I can't remember what these are called for the life of me and it is going to drive me crazy!

    When we have a basic logic statement like
    P \implies Q

    What is the actual name of the first term (P) and the second term (Q). I know they have titles for them and I can't remember!

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but P would be the premise and Q would be the conclusion.

    Another correct answer would be the antecedent and the consequent.
