Write the statement in symbols using the p and q given below. Then construct a truth table for the symbolic statement and select the best match.
p = I eat too much
q = I'll exercise.
I'll exercise if I eat too much.
Is it q>p?? I do not know how to do the truth table :(

I'll exercise if I eat too much.
can be rephrased as:
IF "I eat too much" THEN "I'll exercise"
≡ IF p THEN q.
Can you continue?

no....still lost with how to construct the table....

The truth table is a standard table for the conditional that you can find from any textbook or notes.
For p>q, it is false ONLY when p is true and q is false, the 3 other cases are all true.
