Question

Let p represent the statement “the car is blue” and q represent the statement “the car is spacious.” What is true of the conjunction p ∧ q? Check all that apply.

The conjunction p ∧ q can be stated as “the car is blue and spacious.”

The conjunction p ∧ q can be stated as “if the car is blue, then it is spacious.”

The statement “the car is blue and spacious” is a compound statement.

The statement “the car is spacious and blue” can be written symbolically as q ∧ p.

p is the hypothesis.

    Answer:

    a) True

    The conjunction p∧q can be read as p and q.

    b) False

    The expression “if the car is blue, then it is spacious” is represented as p⇒q

    c) True

    Remember, a compund statement is a stament formed by one or more logical connectives to a collection of simple statements.

    Observe that the stament “the car is blue and spacious” results from the application of the connective ∧ to the simple staments p, q.

    d) True

    The conjunction q ∧ p can be read as ” q and p”

    e) False

    Neither are hypotheses because the logical implication connector is not being used.
