Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a) Write this statement symbolically as a conjunction of two conditional statements. Use three components (p, q, and r) and explicitly state what these are in your work. Remember: a component in logic is a simple declarative sentence that is either true or false. For example, "You are a student in MAT 101" would be a component statement. Note how this sentence contains no logical connectives like "not", "or", "and", etc. b) Write the negation of this statement symbolically. Explain your reasoning here. c) Now use part b) to write the negation of this statement verbally. A p means 'person is mathematician' q means 'person is good logician' and r means 'justifies their claims' (p⟹q)∧(q⟹r) B (~p⟹~q)∧(~q⟹~r) You put the ~ mark because that negates the statement. C  If a person is not a mathematician then the person is not a good logician or they do not justify their claims

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0p: a person is a good mathematician q: a person is a good logician \(p\implies q\) : if a person is a good mathematician, then a person is a good logician rather tortured english, would probably say if a person is a good mathematician then he or she is also a good logician

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what would the r statement be?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(q\implies r\) : if a person is a good logician, then they justify their claims

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would i say r: person justifies their claims

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[(p\implies q)\land (q\implies r)\] take those two statements and stick the word "and" between them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if a person is a good logician, then they justify their claims and if a person is a good logician, then they justify their claims

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no that is \[(p\implies q)\land (q\implies r)\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok would I see.. would I put a ~ before the q and the r to negate it ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no you have to put \(\lnot\) in front of the whole thing

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is the explanation for that ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\lnot\left((p\implies q)\land (q\implies r)\right)\] then you should rewrite without the \(\implies \) and use demorgan laws

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it will take a while do you know that \(p\implies q\equiv \lnot p\lor q\)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to negate a statement you put a big \(\lnot\) in front of the whole thing, you do not negate each piece separately

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok how do I explain the reasoning for it?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have some statement "blah blah blah" the the negation is "it is not true that blah blah blah"

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you want to negate it you have to rewrite it as \[(\lnot p \lor q)\land (\lnot q\lor r)\] then negate it as \[\lnot \left((\lnot p \lor q)\land (\lnot q\lor r)\right)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0unless you are unfamiliar with these laws. perhaps you are supposed to do something else

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0your original statement All mathematicians must be good logicians and all good logicians must justify their claims is correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ive never seen that little hook thing, but i see that in the textbook it says converse inverse and contrapostive .. not sure if that helps

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually i would get rid of the word "must"

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"all mathematicians are good logicians and all good logicians justify their claims" perhaps is better

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats why i thought this symbol would be in the equation ~

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(\lnot\) is the same as ~

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so should i use the ~ if that what the text book uses?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok .. how should i explain that in simple terms?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is this good... The symbol ~ means not. Therefore, if a person is not a good mathematician then the person is not a good logician, and the person cannot justify their claims.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i would think perhaps the negation, without using the symbols, would be not all mathematicians are good logicians or not all logicians justify their claims

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so i should use that instead of if a person is not a good... ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if a person is a good mathematician, then they are a good logician the statement if a person is not a good mathematician then the person is not a good logician is not the negation, it is the "inverse"

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so would that be a good explanation?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then negation of "if a person is a good mathematician, then they are a good logician" is there is some mathematician who is not a good logician

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0c) Now use part b) to write the negation of this statement verbally.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the negation of the whole thing would read something like "there is a good mathematician who is not a good logician, or there is a good logician who does not justify their claims

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the negation of the "and" statement is one or the other is false

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\lnot \left((\lnot p \lor q)\land (\lnot q\lor r)\right)\] \[\lnot(\lnot p\lor q)\lor \lnot(\lnot q \lor r)\] \[(p\land \lnot q)\lor (q\land \lnot r)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the last statement says there is a good mathematician who is not a good logician or there is a good logician who does not justify their claims
