    Any chance this is probability related?

    like the probability of me getting wet (x) given that I am walking in the rain (y) P(x|y) = 1 in this example

    i know when you're stating truth sets or solution sets, it is usually stated as x|solution with respect to x and read as x such that solution with respect to x. I'm not sure what this is though

    Yah it means "such that" Although in the example you gave, that might have been umm the divisor thing. Example: 5|15 --> "5 divides 15" or 15=5*c
