1 that governs the use of parentheses for propositional forms can be extended to the connectives ⇒ and ⇐ ⇒: The connectives ∼, ∧, ∨, ⇒, and ⇐ ⇒ are always applied in the order listed. Thus, ∼ applies to the smallest possible proposition, then ¿ is applied with the next smallest scope, and so forth. For example, P ⇒ ∼Q ∨ R ⇐ ⇒ S is an abbreviation for (P ⇒ [(∼Q ) ∨ R]) ⇐ ⇒ S, P ∨ ∼Q ⇐ ⇒ R ⇒ S is an abbreviation for [P ∨ (∼Q)] ⇐ ⇒ (R ⇒ S), and P ⇒ Q ⇒ R is an abbreviation for (P ⇒ Q) ⇒ R. 2 1. Identify the antecedent and the consequent for each of the following conditional sentences.

And finally, new theorems can be proved. The structure of a proof for a particular theorem depends greatly on the logical form of the theorem. Proofs may require some ingenuity or insightfulness to put together the right statements to build the justification. Nevertheless, much can be gained in the beginning by studying the fundamental components found in proofs and examples that exhibit them. The four rules that follow provide guidance about what statements are allowed in a proof, and when. Some steps in a proof may be statements of axioms of the basic theory upon which the discussion rests.

Give a symbolic translation for each of these interpretations. Let T = {17}, U = {6}, V = {24}, and W = {2, 3, 7, 26}. In which of these four different universes is the statement true? a) (Ex) (x is odd ⇒ x > 8). b) (Ex) (x is odd ∧ x > 8). (∀x) (x is odd ⇒ x > 8). c) d) (∀x) (x is odd ∧ x > 8). 7. (a) ଁ 8. 1(b): Proof: Let U be any universe. The sentence ∼ (Ex) A(x) is true in U iff . . iff (∀x) ∼ A(x) is true in U. 1 that uses part (a). Which of the following are true? The universe for each statement is given in parentheses.
