Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I believe you can use a truth table to check this. Make a truth table for each and see if they are the same.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It isn't the equivalence of ~(P ^ Q) would be ~P \/ ~Q according to DeMorgan's law.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can make a truth table. check each combination of true and false like this: p = true, q = true: ~(true ^ true) = ~(true) = false p = true, q = false: ~(true ^ false) = ~false = true and so forth. make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there will be 4 rows for each table (TT, TF, FT, FF). if the two tables are identical then the statements are equivalent.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so in the first column of answers it would end up being T, F, F, F...right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wouldn't that just mean the number has to be 5 or bigger?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there are no numbers per say. these are logical expressions. each p, q can only be either true or false.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0heisenberg...right, I was helping another girl (trying to) and it popped up on here...sorry about that. The statement I was figuring out was the first one: ~(p ^ q)
