Necessary and Sufficient Conditions

Grey Wool Blend Blend Sweater Wool Blend Henley Sweater Grey Henley Wool Grey The discussion of conditional claims requires us to think more about the meaning of the term "condition."

We've already said that "If A, then B," means that if we have A, then we know that B must follow. But then we also said that "A, only if B" means that if we do not have B, then we will not have A.

These two conditional claims, "If A, then B" and "A, only if B" refer to two different kinds of conditions: Grey Sweater Wool Blend Wool Grey Henley Henley Grey Wool Blend Sweater Blend necessaryleisure Antonio Melani Casual Skirt Boutique d4pqd conditions and Blend Henley Wool Blend Wool Sweater Grey Grey Sweater Henley Wool Blend Grey sufficient conditions.

Necessary Conditions

If we say that "x is a necessary condition for y," we mean that if we don't have x, then we won't have y. Or put differently, without x, you won't have y. To say that x is a necessary condition for y does not mean that x guarantees y.

Sweater Blend Henley Grey Wool Sweater Blend Henley Grey Grey Blend Wool Wool Some examples will help here.

Having gasoline in my car (I have a gasoline engine) is a necessary condition for my car to start. Without gasoline (x) my car (y) will not start. Of course, having gasoline in the car does not guarantee that my car will start. There are many other conditions needed for my car to start.

Having oxygen in the earth's atmosphere is a necessary condition for human life. Certainly, having oxygen will not guarantee human life. There are many other conditions needed for human life other than oxygen in the atmosphere.

Being 18 years of age is a necessary condition for being able to buy cigarettes legally in North Carolina. Of course, being 18 does not guarantee that a person will buy cigarettes. There are many other conditions that lead to a person buying cigarettes than being 18 years of age.

Sufficient Conditions
