Hi Emma, I'll give you this in point form because they decide a few things.

Smollett says they can't turn back and there must be some sailors that aren't "scurvy mutineers". Captain Smollett thinks that they should attack the mutineers when they least expect it.

The three men figure out who might still be loyal.

Doctor Livesey thinks Jim should be their source of info. He is well liked and nobody suspects him for being a "snich". They just think him an innocent boy.

Jim tallies the odds as 7 good guys vs 19 bad guys. Not good odds.
