Section # 1

Determine the truth value of the given statement. Assume that A, B, C, or D are true and X, Y, Z are false. Complete the entire statement by placing all values in for the given letters. Circle your answer. Show all of your work for full credit.

1. ~ { [ (~ C v ~ D) • (Z v ~ A ) ] É ~ [ ~ (D v ~Y ) v ( X v ~ Z ) ] }

2. {[ A É ( B É C ) ] É [ ( A • B ) É C ]} É [ ( Y É B ) É ~ ( C É  ~ Z ) ]

3. ~ {~ [ (Y v ~ Z) •  (A v ~ X ) ]  • ~ [~ (Y v A)  • (~ C v B ) ]}

Section # 2

If A, B, are true, and X, Y, are false, and P, Q are unknown, determine the truth value of the following. Fully complete each equation. If the truth value of the statement cannot be determined, write "undetermined." Circle your answer. Show all of your work for full credit.

1. B É ~ P

2. [ Q v ( B · Y ) ] É [ ( Q v B ) · ( Q v ~ Y ) ]

3. ( P É X) É { [ P É ( X É Q ) ] É ( P É Q ) }

Section # 3

Determine whether the following arguments are either valid or invalid by using truth tables only. Write out your answer next to the problem and also circle your proof (i.e. show which line(s) are invalid) . Show all of your work for full credit.

1. ( O v P ) É Q / Q É ( O • P )  //  ( ~ O v P ) É ( ~ O • P )

2.  (Q v S ) É ( ~ P · P ) / ~ Q v S // ~ Q É ( S v P )

3. W É X /  X É W / ~X  É ~ Y / Y  • X  // W º ~Y

4. Z // E É ( Z É E )

Section # 4

Determine whether the following arguments are either valid or invalid by using the indirect method only of establishing validity. Circle your answer. Show all of your work for full credit.

1.  G É ( I v D ) / ( I • D ) É B // G É B

2. ( ~ J · ~ K ) / ( L É J ) / ( M É K ) /  ( M É ~ L ) É ~ ( N · O ) // ~ N

3. ~ ( O • Z ) É ( M • ~ A ) /  M É R /  Z ≡ ~ O / ~ R v A  // ~ O ≡ ~ R

4. ( Z • K ) v ~ ( R É O ) / ( O v M ) É ~ R / ( M • K ) ≡ R  // ~ Z ≡ O

5.  ( A É B ) É ( C • D)  /  (~ A v ~ B ) É E  / ~E   // (~ C • ~ D ) É E

6. B É ( E · D ) / ( ~ E v ~ F ) /  E É ( B v G ) /  G É ( D É F ) // G v ~ E
