Use abstraction to sort through the riff-raff

If/then statements can be replaced with p\rightarrow q (read: “p implies q”).  Such a statement is equivalent to its contrapositive (\sim q\rightarrow \sim p, read: “not q implies not p”).  Abstracting the statements by replacing them with variables makes it easier to quickly identify the contrapositive among the statements.
