The converse, inverse, and contrapositive are connected statements that can be derived from a given statement in both logic and mathematics. The correctness of the original statement is evaluated and verified using these statements. Reversing the subject and predicate order obtains the converse of a statement (the part of the sentence that contains the verb). For instance, the converse of the statement "All cats are animals" is "All animals are cats."
By denying the statement's subject and predicate, one can obtain the statement's inverse. The converse of the adage "All cats are animals" is "No cats are animals," for instance. The predicate and subject of the converse of a statement are negated to produce the contrapositive of the statement. For instance, the statement "No animals are cats" is the opposite of "All cats are animals."
It is significant to note that the converse, inverse, and contrapositive of a statement are many times not true. For instance, the converse of the statement "All cats are animals" is "All animals are cats," which is not compulsorily true because not all animals are cats. Likewise, the inverse of the statement "All cats are animals" is "No cats are animals," which is also not compulsorily true because not all cats are animals.
In logic and mathematics, it is usually useful to examine the accuracy of a statement by investigating its converse, inverse, and contrapositive properties. If the original statement is true, then its converse, inverse, and contrapositive will also be true. If any of these statements are false, then the original statement is also false.
