Truth-Functional Claims Translations: Simple Claims For the purposes of this document, we will use keys common on most computers. • The tilde (~) remains the same, but and will be represented by &, or will be represented by V, and If, then will be represented by >. • Use capital T for true and capital F for false (3 points x 5 = 15 total points) Instructions The simple claims below are from the textbook Exercise 7.6 (page 167). Designate a letter to represent each simple claim, and then translate the truth-functional claims into symbolic forms. Be sure to provide a breakdown on which claims are represented by which letter. Example People often think that all claims are either facts or opinion. Answer: F  O F = People often think that all claims are facts. O = People often think that all claims are opinions. 1. You will crash the car unless you put on the brakes. (You will crash the car, or you put on the brakes.) 2. The cat is in the hat and the Grinch stole Christmas. 3. If you study, you will pass the exam . 4. Jane says she isn’t happy, yet she is laughing all the time 5. The car does not decelerate. Part C. Truth-Functional Claims Translations: Identifying Operator Identification For the purposes of this document, we will use keys common on most computers. • The tilde (~) remains the same, but and will be represented by &, or will be represented by V, and If, then will be represented by >. • Use capital T for true and capital F for false (4 points x 5 = 20 total points) Instructions From the textbook Exercise 7.11 (pages 170–171), follow the directions for claims below. • Be sure to identify the claims represented by the capital letters you have chosen as well as the type of main operator (i.e. conjunction, disjunction, negation, or conditional).

You do not feel safe in the dark, yet your mission is to go into that cave. . 3. Only if I do not pass the exam will I miss the next course. 4. If you are not my friend, then you are against me. 5.
