## Discrete Mathematics with Applications 4th Edition

If $p$, then $q. If q$, then $r$. Therefore, if $p$, then $r$. If this function is a polynomial, then this function is diffrentiable. If thisfunction is differentiable, then this function is continuous. Therefore, if this function is a polynomial, then this function is continuous.
Replace each complete idea (i.e., an idea that can be expressed as a complete, independent sentence) as a single letter (here, $p$, $q$, or $r$). Fill in the blanks in the example argument based on where you put the letters $p$, $q$, and $r$ by examining the first argument.
