Affirming the consequent

The fallacy of deducing \(P\) from \(P \Rightarrow Q\) and \(Q\). Also called the converse error. This is a fallacy in mathematical reasoning.

 

Example

The student knows that if a function is differentiable, then it is continuous. He concludes [ERROR] that the absolute value function is differentiable, since it is clearly continuous.
