( ( [(p/\q)/\r] \/ [(p/\q)/\~r]) \/~q ) -> s how can we simplify the compound statement? please help me I must do it until monday I can do up to three steps but ı dont know what it can continue
You might need to use the distributive law for disjunction and conjunction .
For example, (A/\B)\/(A/\~B) = A/\(B\/~B) = A
Additionally, A->B equals ~A\/B (ex.((A->B) <-> (~A\/B))).
After simplifying your formula, you might need to verify the result using a truth table.
Hello, lozgur!
Vagabond is absolutely correct.

Question:
For each of these sets of premises, what relevant conclusion or conclu-
sions can be drawn? Explain the rules of inference used to obtain each
conclusion from premises.(a) "If I eat spicy foods, then I have strange dreams." "I have strange
dreams if there is thunder while I sleep." "I did not have strange
dreams."
(b) "I am dreaming or hallucinating." "I am not dreaming." "If I am
hallucinating, I see elephants running down the roads."
ı instaled this statement:
(a)
p:I eat spicy foods
q:I have strange dreams
r:there is thunder while I sleep
(p->q)/\(r->q)/\~q
do ı solve [(p->q)/\(r->q)/\~q] this statement for this question? ı dont understand what this question say
