## What are the rules of propositional logic?

**The propositions are equal or logically equivalent if they always have the same truth value**. That is, p and q are logically equivalent if p is true whenever q is true, and vice versa, and if p is false whenever q is false, and vice versa. If p and q are logically equivalent, we write p = q.

## What is the truth value of the compound proposition P → Q ↔ P if P is false and Q is true?

Summary:

Operation | Notation | Summary of truth values |
---|---|---|

Negation | ¬p | The opposite truth value of p |

Conjunction | p∧q | True only when both p and q are true |

Disjunction | p∨q | False only when both p and q are false |

Conditional | p→q | False only when p is true and q is false |

## What is tautology prove that P → Q ↔ (~ p → q is a tautology?

A proposition P is a tautology **if it is true under all circumstances**. It means it contains the only T in the final column of its truth table. Example: Prove that the statement (p⟶q) ↔(∼q⟶∼p) is a tautology.

## What is logically equivalent to P → Q?

P → Q is logically equivalent to **¬ P ∨ Q** . Example: “If a number is a multiple of 4, then it is even” is equivalent to, “a number is not a multiple of 4 or (else) it is even.”

## What does P → q mean?

p → q (p implies q) (if p then q) is **the proposition that is false when p is true and q is false and true otherwise**. Equivalent to —not p or q“ Ex. If I am elected then I will lower the taxes.

## How do you write propositional logic?

For example, in terms of propositional logic, the claims, “if the moon is made of cheese then basketballs are round,” and “if spiders have eight legs then Sam walks with a limp” are exactly the same. They are both implications: statements of the form, **P→Q.** **P → Q** .

## Is P → Q ↔ P a tautology a contingency or a contradiction?

The proposition p ∨ ¬(p ∧ q) is also **a tautology** as the following the truth table illustrates. Exercise 2.1.

## Which of the following propositions is tautology Pvq → Qpv Q → P PV P → Q Both B & C?

The correct answer is option (d.) **Both (b) & (c)**. Explanation: (p v q)→q and p v (p→q) propositions is tautology.

## Is P ∧ Q ∨ P → Q a tautology?

Therefore, regardless of the truth values of p and q, the truth value of (p∧q)→(p∨q) is T. Thus, **(p∧q)→(p∨q) is a tautology**.

## What will be truth values of the statement p ↔ P for the truth values t f of P?

If p=T, then we must have ~p=F. Now that we’ve done ~p, we can combine its truth value with q’s truth value to find the truth value of **~p∧q**. (Remember than an “and” statment is true only when both statement on either side of it are true.)

Truth Tables.

p | q | p↔q |
---|---|---|

T | T | T |

T | F | F |

F |

## Which of the proposition is p ∧ P ∨ q is?

The proposition p∧(∼p∨q) is: **a tautology**. **logically equivalent to p∧q**.

## What is the Contrapositive of P → q?

Contrapositive: The contrapositive of a conditional statement of the form “If p then q” is “If ~q then ~p”. Symbolically, the contrapositive of p q is **~q ~p**.

## How do you do inverse and contrapositive converse?

**If the statement is true, then the contrapositive is also logically true.** **If the converse is true, then the inverse is also logically true**.

Converse, Inverse, Contrapositive.

Statement | If p , then q . |
---|---|

Converse | If q , then p . |

Inverse | If not p , then not q . |

Contrapositive | If not q , then not p . |

## What is the negation of P → Q?

The negation of “P and Q” is “**not-P or not-Q**”.

## What is the converse of/p q RVS?

The converse of p → q is **q → p**. The inverse of p → q is ∼ p →∼ q. A conditional statement and its converse are NOT logically equivalent. A conditional statement and its inverse are NOT logically equivalent.

## What is the converse of if I have a Siberian husky then I have a dog?

“If P then Q” is given by “If Q then P”. Thus, the converse of the conditional statement given in the question will be: “**If I have a dog then I have a Siberian Husky**”.

## Is the conditional statement P → Q → Pa tautology?

~p is a tautology. Definition: A compound statement, that is always true regardless of the truth value of the individual statements, is defined to be a tautology. Let’s look at another example of a tautology.

F | T | F |
