    Given an implication: .  p \to q

    . . \begin{array}{ccc}\text{Converse: } & q \to p & \text{Switch the two parts} \\<br /> <br />
\text{Inverse: }& \sim p \to\: \sim q & \text{Negate the two parts}\\<br /> <br />
\text{Contrapositive: } & \sim q \to\: \sim p & \text{Switch and negate}<br />
\end{array}


    Can you finish the problem now?
