This is a geometry 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?

  • Geometry -

    Is 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

  • Geometry -

    I 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.
