Bachelorette condition

Greetings! Quick question on the example: If one is a bachelorette , then that person must be unmarried and a remain. Say I label unmarried as UNM, is it still ideal to strike a line through it since it is negative? Or is it ok when negating and changing to sufficient to then strike a line to negate the unmarried? It seems to me to be saying the same thing. I ask mainly cause I see this coming up later on. Should I just get in a habit of striking a line through negative sufficients and necessarys? I hope this makes sense. Mostly just a labeling question.

Hi @DevinFuller,

Could you let us know which video, and which part of that video, you're referring to just to make sure we answer your question correctly? Generally, you want to reverse and negate. However, sometimes that process can be tricky when you're negating something that's already negated. For example, the negation of "unmarried" would be "married," so it's in the affirmative. You can choose how you want to think of it - for some people, it's easier to keep with the patterns and negate "unmarried," so it looks like "not unmarried" ...but for others, they may prefer to represent "not unmarried" as "married." I would need to know exactly where in the videos you're referring to, however, to give you more detailed insight!

Hope this helps, feel free to reply if you need more clarification!
