CHAPTER 2 Methods of proof List and describe each proof technique that can be used to prove the conditional P = ) Q: When proving that the conditional P = ) Q is true, are there any requirements on the truth of P and Q , respectively? Does P always have to be true? Does Q always have to be true? What is the most common interpretation of showing that P = ) Q is true? to a conditional? Identify each method used to solve practice problems, homework prob- lems, problems from lecture and recitations. Remark 1 When trying to prove a conditional ALWAYS state which method of proof you use. Also, ALWAYS clearly state what is the hypothesis and what are involved, it is best to write them down as well, especially if you don±t know how to start or continue the problem. 1
