If Mike hits the wall on the east OR on the west, then Mike goes backwards 30 steps, then Mike turn to a random direction AND goes forward again.

The second part we can write as (R & S & T) - don't be deceived by the 'then', which indicates time rather than conditionality. We put the whole thing together like this: (P V Q) -> (R & (S & T)). The truth table should be routine. Can you continue? Thanks from Gab Last edited by 123qwerty; February 4th, 2017 at 06:05 AM.

I can provide you with a few representative examples so that you can work out the rest yourself. Code: P | Q | R | S | T | (P v Q) -> (R & (S & T)) T | T | T | T | T | T T T T T T T T T T | F | T | T | F | T T F F T F T F F F | F | T | T | T | F F F T T T T T T F | F | T | T | F | F F F T T F T F F Thanks from Gab Last edited by 123qwerty; February 4th, 2017 at 07:07 AM.
