Translating it into If-Then form might be a good stepping stone.
Cat → cute (it is a cat → it is cute)
"iPods are mp3 players" into p → q form.
The conclusion typically comes at the end of the statement.
iPods → mp3 players (it is iPod → it is mp3 player)
What is the converse of the statement "I cry whenever I watch P.S. I Love You"?
The converse is switching the hypothesis and the conclusion. And let's see you watch P.S. I Love You without tearing up.
I watch P.S. I Love You whenever I cry. (Alternatively: If I cry, then I watch P.S. I Love You.)
What is the inverse of the statement, "If it is a high school, then it is a learning institution"?
Inverses negate everything. No, they don't. Yes, they do.
If it is not a high school, then it is not a learning institution.
What is the contrapositive of the statement "All statements have contrapositives"?
Don't let the statement itself confuse you.
If it does not have a contrapositive, then it is not a statement.
"Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches contain jelly." Is the converse of the statement true or false? Is the inverse of the statement true or false? Is the contrapositive true or false?
The contrapositive is the inverse of the converse. Makes sense, right?
The converse ("If it contains jelly, then it is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich") is not always true. The inverse ("If it is not a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, then it does not contain jelly") is also untrue. The contrapositive ("If it does not contain jelly, then it is not a peanut butter and jelly sandwich") is true.
