## derived from two premises. The conclusion

necessarily follows from the premises so that, if these are true, the conclusion must be true, and the syllogism amounts to demonstration. To put it another way, the premises imply the conclusion.For example, every virtue is laudable; kindness is a virtue; therefore kindness is laudable.

Strangely, a syllogism can still be true if the premises are false.

Compare inference rule.

## damental operations of

artificial intelligence and logic programming languages like Prolog.Inference is a basic part of human reasoning. For example given that all men are mortal and that Socrates is a man, it is a trivial step to infer that Socrates is mortal. We might express these symbolically:

man(X) => mortal(X). man(socrates).("if X is a man then X is mortal" and "Socrates is a man"). Here, "man", "mortal" and "socrates" are just arbitrary symbols which the computer manipulates without reference to or knowledge of their external meaning. A forward chaining system (a production system) could use these to infer the new fact

mortal(socrates).simply by matching the left-hand-side of the implication against the fact and substituting socrates for the variable X.

SYLK format existed in one form or another in as early as 1987, and was part of Excel v1.0. It is is an outgrowth of VisiCalc DIF file format.

SYLK format is ascii text and represents information about both formula, value, and some formatting information, which makes it something like an RTF for spreadsheets. It is used as a general tabular data exchange format.
