A: √2 is rational

Answer #1

1)Translate all the definitions needed to derive the conclusion
into propositional formulas (i.e., premises)
2)Derive your proof for S using natural deduction with the
premises.
S: there exist irrational numbers a and b such that a^b is
rational
A: √2 is rational
B: √2^√2 is rational
C: √2^√2*√2 is rational

Use natural deduction to derive the conclusion in each
problem.
Use conditional proof or indirect proof as needed:
1.
(x)(Jx⊃∼Ga)
2.
(∃x)(Jx • Gc)
/ a ≠ c

INSTRUCTIONS: Use natural deduction to derive
the conclusion in each problem.
Use conditional proof or indirect proof as needed:
1.
(x)[(Kx∨Nx)⊃(Ex •∼Rx)]
2.
(x)[(Kx∨Sx)⊃(Rx∨Hx)]
/ (x)[Kx⊃(Ex • Hx)]

1. For each statement that is true, give a proof and for each

(a) For all natural numbers n, n2
+n + 17 is prime.
(b) p Þ q and ~ p Þ ~ q are NOT logically
equivalent.
(c) For every real number x
³ 1, x2£
x3.
(d) No rational number x satisfies
x^4+ 1/x
-(x+1)^(1/2)=0.
(e) There do not exist irrational numbers

Consider the natural deduction proof given below. Using your
knowledge of the natural deduction proof method and the options
provided in the drop-down menus, fill in the blanks to identify the
missing information (premises, inferences, or justifications) that
completes the given application of the simplification (Simp)
rule.
1.(M ≡ O) • ~(S ⋁ G)
2.M
3.~(S ⋁ G) • (O ⊃ ~M)
4.~S/ ~(S ⋁ G)
5.~(S ⋁ G) _____________ Simp

1. There are three islanders: A says “If B and I are both
telling the truth, then so is C”, B says “If C is telling the
truth, then A is lying”, and C says “It is not the case that all
three of us are telling the truth.” Using propositional variables
a, b, and c to represent the truth of the statements of A, B, and C
respectively, we can represent the problem by the three premises a
↔...

Prove the following using induction:
(a) For all natural numbers n>2, 2n>2n+1
(b) For all positive integersn,
1^3+3^3+5^3+···+(2^n−1)^3=n^2(2n^2−1)
(c) For all positive natural numbers n,5/4·8^n+3^(3n−1) is
divisible by 19

1. [10 marks] We begin with some mathematics regarding
uncountability. Let N = {0, 1, 2, 3, . . .} denote the set of
natural numbers.
(a) [5 marks] Prove that the set of binary numbers has the same
size as N by giving a bijection between the binary numbers and
N.
(b) [5 marks] Let B denote the set of all infinite sequences
over the English alphabet. Show that B is uncountable using a proof
by diagonalization.

1. In the space below,
a. state Archimedes’ Principle
b. define density
c. Mathematically, derive an equation based on this laboratory
that uses Archimedes principle to measure the density of an object
in terms of measurable quantities. Make sure the density of the
object is NOT in terms of the unknown volume of the object in
question. You can assume you know the density of water.
d. Be sure to draw a free-body diagram of the mass attached to
the...
