Hello, greenway!

Welcome aboard!

Given an implication: .$\displaystyle p \to q$

. . $\displaystyle \begin{array}{ccc}\text{Converse: } & q \to p & \text{Switch the two parts} \\

\text{Inverse: }& \sim p \to\: \sim q & \text{Negate the two parts}\\

\text{Contrapositive: } & \sim q \to\: \sim p & \text{Switch and negate}

\end{array}$

Can you finish the problem now?
