unfortunately its same as the same as the other problem, just a little different

wow double words, my mistake lol

  • jim_thompson5910
p is true r is false so `p v r` is ??? look at the table I did for `p v q` on your last post

no numbers in involved, just wants to know whether its true or false, I dont know why I mess these things up, but its the darn true or false statements they switch in the directions

I got all true except one F near the bottom

does that table make sense?

How do you get back to old posts, sorry...

i found it
anonymous
  • anonymous
so would it be true overall?

~q is a false statement so its true, and I'm not sure about r, it seems like true statement
jim_thompson5910

what would the truth value of `p v r` be?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
think of the "v" as an "or"
anonymous
  • anonymous
so would it be considered a false statement...
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
p is true r is false overall `p v r` is true because at least one piece of the compound statement is true
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
go back to that table I drew

ko

  • jim_thompson5910
or think of an example the statement "water is wet OR unicorns exist" is overall true because water is indeed wet even though unicorns don't exist. So the person saying this compound statement isn't lying

I see, so even if theres a false statement, but a true statement within, its true.
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yeah both need to be false for `p v r` to be false
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
if you change that OR to AND, then both need to be true for the whole thing to be true. Otherwise, the whole thing is false. So in a way, it's like the flip of OR
