What a silly question. You're either going to get "this one was easier for me" or "it depends on your strengths."

So what form of math is logic simular to? What steps are simular in math to logic, example like completing the square or quadratic equations.

* Note I have no idea what logic is so just curious.

OP, you do realize what one considers easy, another considers hard right?

It depends entirely on the course, and the individual.

Logic is studied in both math (e.g. Proof of l'Hôpital's rule) and philosophy (e.g. Modus tollens).

To be fair, the examples I've provided are drastically inequitable, which might be considered a type of logical fallacy.

I'm sure many would argue with this assertion, and they would likely be correct, but to over-simply the matter... math logic dictates why 2+2=4 and philosophical logic dictates that the statement "no man is taller than himself" is true.

Personally, I found philosophy easier than math, but that's just me.

No you don't, so choose maths.

This question is difficult because logic is only a small field, but "Maths" could be anything. I did some maths courses that were easier than logic and some that were harder.

If it helps, logic sits more closely with discrete maths (if you know what that is!)
