Understand deductive reasoning

In this video, Robert Ahdoot becomes "surfer dude" and shows us the ways of deductive reasoning, as relating to geometry. He begins with a simple example of a syllogism, taking two premises and using them to form a conclusion. This is called the Law of Syllogism. This concept is then used for geometric statements.
