Add De Morgan's Laws | 6 | 19:18, 23 March 2012 |

Is there no better way than these extensive truth tables? I would assume De Morgan's Laws would are taught in this course. Can we add an alternative solution using these?

Well to do that, you have to know that

And then do a bunch of playing around. I think only mathematicians think it's easier. That being said, now that I worked it out, I might as well write that solution as well...

Or simply

Either way, good that we have this additional solution, thanks for working it out. One last thing, should we not be more precise in the difference between \rightarrow and \Rightarrow? So far we use them interchangeably, maybe we should stick to one notation.

- ) ah yes, that should make it more easy. I'll simplify the proof with that. And as for the arrows, I don't think students will care much... the Rightarrow html equivalent is really ugly in the wiki font in my memory, but we can make the changes if you think it's important.

Actually, the solution now doesn't use Morgan's Laws at all... It's much simpler, but I'm still unsure if in the case of MATH220, the truth table isn't what is intended. In any case, we have both now :)
