determine the validity of the following argument
S1:Babies are illogocal
S2:Nobody is despised who can manage a crocodile
S3:Illogical people are despised
S:Babies cannot manage crocodiles
s1,s2,s3 are the premises and S is the conclusion
I always find it easier to replace these statements with just variables
1) $\displaystyle a\Rightarrow b$ baby implies illogical
3)$\displaystyle b\Rightarrow c $ illogical implies despised.
2)$\displaystyle d \Rightarrow \sim c$ can manage a croc implies not despised
For 2 I find it easier to work with the contrapositive,
which would be $\displaystyle c \Rightarrow \sim d$ despised implies cannot handle a croc.
now I think you can string these together to reach a conclusion that the statement cannot be true.
