I could not make the diagram right. I'm still puzzling. Can you refer to any other video which might lead me to understand it better?

majorgeneraldave's picture

Hi,

I suggest taking a look at the videos explaining Sufficient Assumption questions that start here, and maybe another look at the videos on conditional reasoning that start here.

yesThe links you gave me did more than helping me to understand the answer for this question!

majorgeneraldave's picture

Excellent!

Hi Dave,

So I had the following:

Happy ---> Health

Therefore

-Health--->Money

Why did we negate Money? Am I missing something wit the "One" at the beginning of the sentence?

majorgeneraldave's picture

It's a complex relationship: what it says is "If it would sacrifice your health to obtain money [all of which I'll abbreviate thus: ~HEALTH], then you should not seek money [~MONEY]."

So if you want to symbolize that conditionally, you'd say:

 ~HEALTH  ~MONEY.

The contrapositive may make more immediate intuitive sense:

MONEY → HEALTH 

In other words, "You should seek to acquire MONEY only if you can maintain your HEALTH while doing so."

Your symbol looks to me as though it says "If it costs you your health, then you should seek money."

See that?

keanhiri's picture

Thanks Dave. I appreciate the prompt reply.

However, I'm still not seeing the relationship between the LSAT text and your simplified interpretation of it.

Can you maybe parse the LSAT text with your translation/interpretation like you've done with the symbols?

The conclusion is kinda awkward to conditionalize it.

Not sacrifice then not money, which is saying don't sacrifice your health for money.

mkhidoya's picture

I've got the same problem. I conditionalized it like:
M -> ~Health

I thought that when the argument says - in order to then this means "if".
