Thus statements like x >0 are not propositions. This is because their truth value cannot be determined unless additional information is specified; in this case the value of x . Statements like x >0 and 3+ x =5 have two parts: a variable (or variables ) and a predicate . We denote these statements P ( x ) where P ( ) is the predicate and x is the variable. Once the variable (or variables) is assigned a value then the truth value of the statement can be determined. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Predicates and Quantifiers 1 of 1 08/27/2003 01:35 PM Predicates and Quantifiers prev | slides |

    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.
