I'd like to see what system you learned, and where you are at.
Five problems, just for me to see. The first two are just
translations into some kind of formal logic. For problem 1, use a
propositional logic (the smallest things in your language will be
sentences). For problem two, use a quantified logic with
predicates. For 3-5, generate a proof (a syntactic proof, not a
truth table). Use whatever rules or proof methods you remember.
- If both Nemo and Jaws are fish, then neither Patrick
nor Mr. Krab are.
- All men are mortal.
- Premises: (P --> Q), (R--> Q), (P v R). Conclusion: Q.
- Conclusion: ((P-->Q) --> (~Q --> ~P)
- Premises: ∀x(Fx --> Gx), ∃xFx.
