Ma2201/CS2022 Discrete Mathematics A Term, 2016 Quiz 0010 Print Name: Sign: 1. ( 6 pts ) Let p , q and r be statements. Show by any method we have learned that ( p r ) ( q r ) ( p q r ) Method 1: You can make a truth table: (every entry must be correct.) p q r p r q r p r q r p q p q r T T T T T T T T T T F F F F T F T F T T T T F T T F F F T T F T F T T T T T F T F T F T F T F T F F T T T T F T F F F T T T F T Method 2: We can use logical identities: ( p r ) ( q r ) ( r ∨ ¬ p ) ( r ∨ ¬ q ) definition of implies r ( ¬ p ∨ ¬ q ) associativity, and r duplicated r ∨ ¬ ( p q ) Demorgans law p q r definition of implies Method 3: Double inplication: Proof: First show ( p r ) ( q r ) ( p q r ). Let ( p r ) ( q r ). We want to show ( p q r ), so let p q . Since ( p r ) ( q r ) there are two cases: If ( p r ), then we already have p since p q , so r is true as required.

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
