The basic of logic is the syllogism, consisting of a major and a minor premise and a conclusion --thus:<br/>_Major Premise_: Sixty men can do a piece of work sixty times as quickly as one man.<br/>_Minor Premise_: One man can dig a posthole in sixty seconds; therefore --<br/>_Conclusion_: Sixty men can dig a posthole in one second. This may be called the syllogism arithmetical, in which, by combining logic and mathematics, we obtain a double certainty and are twice blessed." - Ambrose Bierce
