Use a truth table to determine whether the argument is valid or invalid.
To identify:
Whether the given argument is valid or invalid using the truth table
Given information:
The argument
Concept Involved:
An Argument and a Valid Argument: Anargumentconsists of a set of statements calledpremisesand another statement called theconclusion. An argument isvalidif the conclusion is true whenever all the premises are assumed to be true. An argument isinvalidif it is not a valid argument.
The following truth table procedure can be used to determine whether an argument is valid or invalid.
Truth Table Procedure to Determine the Validity of an Argument:
A conjunction is a compound statement formed by joining two statements with the connector AND. The conjunction "p and q" is symbolized by
A conditional statement, symbolized by
A biconditional statement is defined to be true whenever both parts have the same truth value. The biconditional operator is denoted by a doubleheaded arrow
