1] Evaluate the validity of the following argument:
Premise: All 20th-century US presidents were men.
Premise: Bill Clinton is a man.
Conclusion: Bill Clinton was a 20th-century president.
I'm in a computer science class, and we've been working on truth tables
i'm not sure if it's similar to what you're doing but maybe it will help?
premise:all 20th cent pres were men
this can be true (1) or false (0)
premise: bill clinton is a man
this also can be true or false
|20th pres men| clinton a man | bill clint a 20thcent pres|
1 | 1 | 1 (both are true)
1 | 0 | 0
0 | 1 | 0
0 | 0 | 0
(the rest false b/c both must be true)
that's what we did, if it's the same then sweet if not, sorry man
