These are arguments that have two premises and one conclusion, all of which are categorical statements (sentences that are, or can be translated into, one of the following: All S are P, No S are P, Some S are P, Some S are not P). Find a real-world example of a categorical syllogism (1) Show us the syllogism in its original form and say where you found it. All cars have wheels. I drive a car. Therefore, my car has wheels. https://examples.yourdictionary.com/examples-of-syllogism.html (2) Translate the syllogism into standard form. Major Premise: All cars have wheels. • Minor Premise: I drive a car. • Conclusion: My car has wheels. (3) Say whether the syllogism is valid or invalid and how you know. The syllogism is valid although the premises are true, the conclusion is not true. In order for it to be valid, the premises and the conclusion both must be true.
