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?

    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.
