## Construct a truth table for the given statement. ( ∼ r ∨ ∼ q ) ∧ ( q → p )

To determine

To construct:

A truth value of the given statement.

### Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The given statement (r~q)(pq)

Concept Involved:

 The negation of statement p is "not p." The negation of p is symbolized by "~p." The truth value of ~p is the opposite of the truth value of p. A disjunction is a compound statement formed by joining two statements with the connector OR. The disjunction "p or q" is symbolized by p∨  q. A disjunction is false if and only if both statements are false; otherwise it is true. A conjunction is a compound statement formed by joining two statements with the connector AND. The conjunction "p and q" is symbolized by p∧q. A conjunction is true when both of its combined parts are true; otherwise it is false. A conditional statement, symbolized by  p→q, is an if-then statement in which p is a hypothesis and q is a conclusion. The conditional is defined to be true unless a true hypothesis leads to a false conclusion. A biconditional statement is defined to be true whenever both parts have the same truth value. The biconditional p↔q represents "p if an only if q", where p is a hypothesis and q is a conclusion.
