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?

**drwls**, Sunday, September 28, 2008 at 8:19pmIs this how geometry is taught these days? It looks like symbolic logic to me.

I believe the answers are:

1. false; true

2. true; false

However I am interpreting the v ("or") symbol as also meaning "and".

I don't see how you can logically convert an "or" statemen to an "and" statement as you have done

**Anonymous**, Sunday, September 28, 2008 at 9:58pmI am not converting them to "and" statements. I am breaking apart statements p and q individually. These are 'disjunctions', did you know that? I'm just trying to see if we're on the same page.
