True False True True

• • • Conditionals If P Then Q – P is the antecedent – Q is the consequence Stoics – Philo of Megara • A conditional is false when and only when the antecedent is true and the consequence is false

• • • Truth-functionality – The truth value of a compound statement is a (total) function based only on the truth values of its parts (which must be propositions) Frege Russell and Whitehead – P IMPLIES Q is equivalent to (NOT P) OR Q

• • • Translate the Following Statements into Symbolic Logic Expressions and Build the Truth Tables for the Expressions If Alex takes CS 120 then Alex is a computer science major If Alex is a computer science major or Alex is a biology major then Alex takes BIO 105 If Alex does not take BIO 105 then Alex is not a biology major

• • Syntactically correct boolean expressions Rule 1 – Each single letter is a well-formed expression – True is a well-formed expression – False is a well-formed expression

• • • Assume P and Q are well-formed expressions Rule 2 – P and Q is a well-formed expression – P or Q is a well-formed expression – P IMPLIES Q is a well-formed expression – P ≡ Q is a well-formed expression – NOT P is a well-formed expression Rule 3 – ( P ) is a well-formed expression

• Are the following expressions well-formed expressions?

– P and (NOT Q) – (A OR B) AND (C OR D) – (R AND S) (NOT W) – (NOT (A AND B)) IMPLIES (B OR C) – (NOT P) IMPLIES (NOT Q) – NOT IMPLIES B OR C
