# June 2007 - Logic Game 4 Setup

## Video Transcript:

0:02
Alright so the fourth and final game on the June 2007 LSAT states: There are
0:08
exactly three recycling centers in Rivertown centre 1, center 2, and center 3.
0:13
Exactly five kinds of material are recycled at these recycling centers:
0:18
glass, newsprint, plastic, tin, and wood. Each recycling center recycles at least
0:25
two but no more than three of these kind of materials. The following conditions must hold:
0:31
Alright so we have three centers; Centers 1, 2, and 3. And each of these centers
0:44
recycles at least two but no more than 3. So, again we know that at least 2 but keep in
0:54
mind max 3 of these materials and what are these materials?
1:02
Well we have five options. Glass, newspaper, plastic, tin, and wood. Alright, so now let's
1:11
turn our attention to the conditions. The first condition tells us
1:15
any recycling center that recycles wood also recycles newsprint. So our first
1:22
condition any again introduces sufficient. So if you recycle wood then
1:26
you must recycle newsprint contrapositive. If you don't recycle newsprint then you don't
1:30
recycle wood. Our second condition tells us that every kind of material at center
1:39
2 recycles is also recycled at center 1. Again, every introduces sufficient. So if
1:46
you are recycled in center 2 you must be recycled by center 1. Contrapositive
1:52
If you're not recycled center 1 you can't be recycled in center 2. You should notice from that
1:59
rule that there are only three possibilities because again we know that
2:07
center 2 is gonna have either two or three materials and if center
2:14
2 has two materials then center 1 is going to share those exact same materials.
2:20
The other possibility is that center 2 has three materials and again we know since
2:28
its max 3 center 1 is going to share those exact same three materials. But
2:37
don't overlook the possibility that a material recycled by center 1 is not
2:44
recycled by center 2 because being in center 1 is our necessary condition it
2:52
tells us absolutely nothing about whether or not that material is also in
2:57
center 2 so it is possible for Center 1 to have 3 spots and center 2 to have only 2. Ok so
3:08
keep that in mind as we progress through this game. Turning our attention to the final condition.
3:14
attention to the final condition only Only one of the centers recycles plastic and that recycling center does not recycle
3:20
that recycling center does not recycled glass. So our last condition here is that we
3:25
have exactly one plastic and that center that recycles plastic does not recycle
3:33
glass... Contrapositive. If you recycle glass you're not recycling the only plastic. Now
3:38
thats going to allow us to make another deduction here because if plastic were to appear in center 2
3:44
rule two tell us it must also appear in center 1 which violates the third
3:50
condition that there's only one plastic. Therefore plastic cannot be in recycling center 2.
3:57
So, actually our one plastic is either going to show up in 1 or 3. Now that
4:04
we have all of our rules in deductions clearly laid out let's turn our
4:08
attention to question number eighteen.
