Hi! I have a tautology problem for 3 points in my class, but i am not even at the chapter involved. I am a day away. This is the problem:

Is it tautology? Why or why not?

( p ^ q) --> (p V q)

In particular, I as yet do not understand what the arrow represent or how the relation is made between the two statement.

I have to have this figured out by tomorrow. Any help appreciated.
