Do you mean clausal form, i.e., a conjunctive normal form? What have you tried to find it, and what exactly is your difficulty?
(p=>q)=>(p=>r) (¬pvq)=>(¬pvr) ¬(¬pvq)v(¬pvr) (p^¬q)v(¬pvr) . And here is where I'm not sure. With the result I have to negate it because is a conclusion to include in a Resolution, and I'm not sure again of the result.

[(p ∧ ¬q) ∨ ¬p] ∨ r [(p ∨ ¬p) ∧ (¬q ∨ ¬p)] ∨ r ¬q ∨ ¬p ∨ r Originally Posted by doctorpi With the result I have to negate it because is a conclusion to include in a Resolution, and I'm not sure again of the result. The negation is q ∧ p ∧ ¬r.
