Perhaps I'm misunderstanding something, seeing as everything I just spewed was learned in my Critical Thinking class, but I'd call this a "cogent" argument; it is inductive as opposed to deductive (uncertain as opposed to certain), but the argument is strong. As well, both premises are true, which leads me to the conclusion that this is a cogent argument.

To any Philosophy students, please don't rag on me! I'm a simple first year student in a 2nd year philosophy course with no background!
