Determine if the biconditional is true. If false, give a counterexample. Example 3A: Analyzing the Truth Value of a Biconditional Statement A rectangle has side lengths of 12 cm and 25 cm if and only if its area is 300 cm 2 .

p q p → q T T T T F F F T T F F T So p → q follows the following reasoning: a True premise implies a True conclusion, therefore T → T is T; a True premise cannot imply a False conclusion, therefore T → F is F; and you can conclude anything from a false assumption, so F → anything is T.
