Question:

by Tami
(Oklahoma City, Ok, USA)


Let p, q, and r be the following statements:


p: Jamie is on the train.
q: Sylvia is at the park.
r : Nigel is in the car.

translate the following statement into English:

(~rVq)->p




Answer:

translate the following statement into English: (~rVq)→p


p: Jamie is on the train.
q: Sylvia is at the park.
r : Nigel is in the car.

“OR” = (written as V) a logical operation in which either or both input values produce a “true” result

“NOT” = (written as ~) a negation

“Conditional If-Then” = (written as →) If the statement preceding this symbol is true, then the statement following this statement is also true.

-------------------------------------------------

(~rVq)→p

IF Nigel is not in the car OR Sylvia is in the park, THEN Jamie is on the train.
