Proposi1ons A proposition is a declarative sentence that is either true or false. Examples of propositions: a) The Moon is made of green cheese. b) Trenton is the capital of New Jersey. c) Toronto is the capital of Canada. d) 1 + 0 = 1 e) 0 + 0 = 2 Examples that are not propositions. a) Sit down! b) What time is it? c) x + 1 = 2 d) x + y = z

Compound Proposi1ons: Nega1on The negation of a proposition p is denoted by ¬ p and has this truth table: Example : If p denotes “The earth is round.”, then ¬ p denotes “It is not the case that the earth is round,” or more simply “The earth is not round.” p ¬ p T F F T
Conjunc1on The conjunction of propositions p and q is denoted by p q and has this truth table: Example : If p denotes “I am at home.” and q denotes “It is raining.” then p q denotes “I am at home and it is raining.” p q p q T T T T F F F T F F F F

Disjunc1on The disjunction of propositions p and q is denoted by p q and has this truth table: Example : If p denotes “I am at home.” and q denotes “It is raining.” then p q denotes “I am at home or it is raining.” p q p q T T T T F T F T T F F F
The Connec1ve Or in English In English “or” has two distinct meanings. “Inclusive Or” ‐ In the sentence “Students who have taken CS 202 or Math 120 may take this class,” we assume that students need to have taken one of the prerequisites, but may have taken both. This is the meaning of disjunction. For p q to be true, either one or both of p and q must be true.

### 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.
