Use truth tables to test the validity of the argument.
p → ~q
q → ~p
∴ p ∨ q

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Case p=T and q=T [(p > ~q) ^ (q > ~p)] > (p V q) [(T > ~T) ^ (T > ~T)] > (T V T) [(T > F ) ^ (T > F)] > T [ F ^ F ] > T F > T T

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1All four cases come out T, so the argument is valid. I think lol.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1p q ~p ~q p > ~q q > ~p p v q T T F F F F T T F F T T T T F T T F T T T F F T T T T F Hmmm... I change my answer its invalid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then u need to make a dumbo table with all the combinations of p and q and verify it or u can use this p>q = (~p) v q

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1"p > ~q" and "q > ~p" the last row has T and T so the conclusion is false?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actuall it mean that u shud conside the cases on when both of them are true

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0consider those case when p → ~q q → ~p are true find them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm consider those inputs for which p → ~q is true q → ~p is true

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay I'm guessing i didn't do that one right so ill work on another one.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol draw truth tables for p → ~q q → ~p and pvq see when p → ~q q → ~p are true pvq is true

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(~p V q) > ~q (~T V F) > ~F (F V F) > T F > T T So (~p V q) > ~q is true.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the first two statements are identical \[p\to \lnot q\iff q\to \lnot p\] one is the contrapositive of the other

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let me right it correctly \[\begin{array}{cccccc} P & Q & \lnot{}P & \lnot{}Q & P\to\lnot{}Q & Q\to\lnot{}P \\ \hline T & T & F & F & F & F \\ T& F & F & T & T & T \\ F & T & T & F & T & T \\ F & F & T & T & T & T \\ \hline \end{array}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the final step is put in the column p v q (this is the first problem) An argument is INVALID if and only if it is logically possible for the conclusion to be false even though every premise is assumed to be true.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you want to check your truth table, use this nice site here takes a second to get used to 0 and 1 instead of T and F, and a minute to learn the syntax but it is really useful http://www.kwi.dk/projects/php/truthtable/?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but try to think "logically" meaning like a human being instead of using T and F the first statement and the second statement are identical, one is the contrapositive of the other. so you do not need them both, they say the same thing

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so none of my tables where right :/ ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this looks ok, The argument is invalid because of the last row p q ~p ~q p > ~q q > ~p p v q T T F F F F T T F F T T T T F T T F T T T F F T T T T F Hmmm... I change my answer its invalid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0P: it is raining Q: i will go to the store \(P\to \lnot Q\) if it is raining then i will not go the the store \(Q\to \lnot P\) if i go to the store, then it is not raining they are identical statements from that, can we conclude that is is raining or i go to the store?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because it looks invalid p q (~p V q) ~q 0 0 1 1 OK 0 1 1 0 INVALID 1 0 0 1 OK 1 1 1 0 INVALID

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0somewhere way up above you typed (~p V q) > ~q (~T V F) > ~F (F V F) > T F > T T So (~p V q) > ~q is true. I am not sure what the problem is, I'm guessing the first line. But your conclusion is not correct, because you did not test every case

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh lol thats just one of them lol. I did so many that I got lost ... but that I found out wasn't correct after all the thinking ;l
