I have a question about disjunctions.

The symbol "v" represents "or". "~" stands for "negation of"

Here are two questions I need help with:

1. When p v ~q is false, then p is ______ and q is _____.

I think "false" belongs in both spaces.

2. When ~p v q is false, then p is ______ and q is ________.

I think "false" is the answer to both of these as well.

Am I correct?

- please help -

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Since you don't classify this as for math or psychology, etc., hopefully the following will help you:

Always clarify the subject matter, if at all possible.
