Solution to Pred. Calculus Problems. Note: V stands for "forall" E stands for "there exists" Problem 1. a. Vx (P(x) => Q(X)) b. Ex (Q(x) => P(X)) c. not (Vx (Q(x) => P(X))) Problem 3. Denote St. Francis by constant sf Denote x loves y by l(x,y) where x and y are variables F1: St. Francis is loved by every one who loves some one: === Vx Ey (l(x,y) => l(x, sf) F2: Noone loves nobody (which means every one loves someone) === Vx Ey l(x,y) Deduce: Vx l(x,sf) Every one loves someone by F2, every one must also love St. Francis
