hmtl>ESGS Logical Fallacies
This fallacy has the following form:

- Person
*p*_{1} makes conclusion *c* based of fallacious 'reasoning' from some premises.
- Person
*p*_{2} shows that conclusion *c* was reached fallaciously.
- Therefore
*p*_{2} claims that conclusion *c* is false.

This is a fallacy because a conclusion can be correct while the 'reasoning' was fallacious. It is the opposite that
is false, namely that it is deemed impossible to reach a wrong conclusion from correct premises and correct
'reasoning'.

Bill: "I want to simplify the fraction 64/16. I eliminate the sixes and get 4/1, that is 4."

Jane: "But you cannot simplify this way. This method is just not allowed. Therefore 64/16 is not equal to 4."

None.
