1. Today’s Topics • Review the eight Rules of Inference: MP, MT, DS, HS, Conj, Simp, Add, CD • Rewiew the ten Rules of Equivalence: Double Negation, DeMorgan, Association, Commutation, Distribution, Implication, Contraposition, Tautology, Exportation • Building Proofs of our own

2. Modus Ponens (MP) From a conditional and a line identical to its antecedent, you may derive a line identical to its consequent Modus Tollens (MT) From a conditional and the negations of its consequent, you may derive the negation of its antecedent Disjunctive Syllogism (DS) From a disjunction and the negation of one disjunct, you may derive the other disjunct Hypothetical Syllogism (HS) From 2 conditionals, if the consequent of the first is identical to the antecedent of the second, you may derive a new conditonal whose antecedent is identical to the antecedent of the first and whose consequent is identical to the consequent of the second. Eight Basic Inference Rules

4. Simplification From a conjunction you may derive either conjunct. Conjunction From any 2 lines you may derive a conjunction which has those lines as conjuncts Addition From any line you may derive a disjunction with that line as a disjunct Constructive Dilemma From a disjunction and 2 conditionals, if the antecedents match the disjuncts, you may derive a disjunction of the consequents

5. Simplification p  q p q Conjunction p q p  q Addition p p v q Constructive Dilemma p v q p  r q  s r v s

6. Double Negation (DN) p :: ~ ~ p DeMorgan (DM) ~(p v q) :: (~p  ~q) ~(p  q) :: (~p v ~q) Association (Assn) (p v q) v r :: p v (q v r) (p  q)  r :: p  (q  r) Commutation (Comm) p v q :: q v p p  q :: q  p Rules of Equivalence

7. Distribution (Dist) [p  (q v r)] :: [(p  q) v (p  r)] [p v (q  r)] :: [(p v q)  (p v r)] Implication (Impl) (p  q) :: (~p v q) Exportation (Exp) ((p q)  r) :: (p  (q  r))

8. Contraposition (Contra) (p  q) :: (~q  ~p) Tautology (Taut) p :: (p  p) p :: (p v p) Equivalence (Equiv) (p  q) :: [(p  q) v (~p ~q)] (p  q) :: [(p  q)  (q  p)]
