Logic and Truth Tables
We can represent the truth of expressions in a tabular form called “truth tables.” These tables consider all cases
and can add great insight into otherwise complicated expressions.

4. Logically equivalent expressions have the same truth tables. Determine if the following
pairs of statements are logically equivalent.
(a) (p  q)  r and (p  r)  (q  r)
(b) ~(p  q) and (~p)  (~q)
(c) ~(p  q) and (~p)  (~q)
