The truth value of a compound statement depends on the truth values of its parts and which connecting words are used. If we combine the two true statement, “Dinosaurs are big,” and,
“soccer balls are round,” we would consider the resulting statement, “Dinosaurs are big and soccer balls are round,” to be true.

    Select the right conjunction form

    A = Samir is tall

    B = Tamer is short

    Samir is tall and Tamer is short

    a) A ∧ B         b) A ∨ B         c) A → B           d) A ¬ B

    A
    B
    C
    D

    What is the truth value of the following conjunctions?

    1. If A is true and B is false, what truth value would you assign to A ∧ B?
    2. If A is false and B is true, what truth value would you assign to A ∧ B?
    3. If A and B are both false, what truth value would you assign to A ∧ B?

    Choose from the following options

    true, false, true
    false, true, true
    false, false, true
    false, false, false

    What is the missing truth value in the following truth table?

    A B A ∧ B 
    T T T
    T F F
    F T ?
    F F F
    True
    False

    What is the missing truth value in the following truth table?

    A B A ∨ B 
    T T T
    T F T
    F T ?
    F F F
    True
    False

    How do you represent "If statement A, then statement B" in formal logic?

    1. A ¬ B
    2. A ∧ B
    3. A → B
    4. A ∨ B
    a
    b
    c
    d

    Consider the following example to fill in the implication truth table

    Your friend promised that if he/she passes the exam, then he/she will go to Friday soccer game. If your friend passes the test and goes to watch the soccer game, the remark was true. If your friend passes the test but doesn’t go to watch the soccer game, the remark was false. If your friend doesn’t pass the test, then—whether he/she goes to watch the soccer game or not—you could not claim that the remark was false. You would probably want to give the benefit of the doubt and say that the statement was true. By convention, A → B is considered true if A is false, regardless of the truth value of B.

    A B A → B
    T T  
    T F  
    F T  
    F F

    Correct
    Incorrect

    What does the following expression stand for?

    A ↔ B

    1. (A → B) ∧ (B → A)

    3. (A ∨ B) ∧ (B ∨ A)
    4. (A ¬ B) ∨ (B ¬ A)
    a
    b
    c
    d

    Complete the missing truth values

    A B A → B B → A

    (A → B) ∧ (B → A)

    T T T T T
