Homework Help: PHI103

Posted by BJ on Wednesday, September 5, 2012 at 10:10pm.

Sorry, I didn't post my argument the last time. Write two arguments in English, one in the form of modus ponens and one in the form of modus tollens. Then, write the arguments in symbols using sentence letters and truth-functional connectives.

The following is one of the arguments and I believe it can be used for both modus ponens and modus tollens depending on how I word it but I don't know how to write it in symbols using sentence letters and truth-functional connectives.

"I have a sump pump in my basement. When it rains the sump pump cuts on and stops
my basement from flooding. Itís raining today but my basement wonít flood
because I have a sump pump."
