Required information Symbolizing Arguments using "If...Then..." and "not-…" Symbolize the following arguments using “if . . . then . . .” and “not- . . .” statements in place of the special symbols → and ~. (Note: Do not enter any periods in your response.) Symbolizing Arguments using "If...Then..." and "not-…" (1) Madderly wins the decision, provided that the referee scores the fight in Madderly’s favor. The referee did score the fight in favor of Madderly. Therefore, Madderly wins the decision. R = Referee scores the fight in Madderly’s favor M = Madderly wins the decision.

Symbolizing Arguments using "If...Then..." and "not-â&#x20AC;Ś" (4) If the new generator will work, then the polarity of the circuit has been reversed. But the polarity of the circuit has not been reversed. The new generator will not work. G = New generator will work. P = Polarity has been reversed.

Providing Causal Hypotheses to Explain Findings 1 Can mere reading of articles about dieting cause teenage girls to resort to extreme weight-loss measures? According to a study published in the journal Pediatrics (reported by Carla K. Johnson of the Associated Press in January 2007), the answer might well be yes. In the study, female middle-school students were interviewed in 1999 and again in 2004, and their heights and weights were measured. Those in the first interview who said they frequently read magazine articles about dieting were more likely than those who said they never read such articles to report in the second survey that they indulged in extreme weight-loss measures like vomiting and taking laxatives. The effect was present whether or not the girls were overweight or considered their weight important when they started reading the articles, the researchers said. Propose two explanations for the findings that seem likely or possible.
