Question

# Make a valid conclusion in the situation.

If cost price > selling price, then the transaction suffers loss.

Cost price = $255 and selling price = $230.

## The correct answer is: Hence we can conclude that the transaction suffers loss.

### Hint:

Law of Detachment states that if p q is true and it is given that p is true then we can conclude that q is also true. Here, the statement is termed as Hypothesis and the statement q is termed as conclusion.

Solution

Consider the statement into two separate statements

p: Cost price > Selling price

q: The transaction suffers loss

So we can write the given statement “If cost price > selling price, then the transaction suffers loss” as:

p q

We are given

Cost price = $255 and Selling price = $230

Here, Cost price > Selling price so we can say that the p statement is true and hence we can conclude that the q statement is also true i .e the transaction suffers loss.

Final Answer:

Hence we can conclude that the transaction suffers loss.
