Hi everyone, does anyone know what the solutions to these questions would be? I am really struggling with this particular piece of homework, so would appreciate any help or explanations. I have to prove that the following statements are valid in proven logic. Thank you :) (¬ = not → = if/ then) ¬ P → ¬Q: Q → P (6) : (P →Q) → (¬Q →¬P) (5) Principle of transposition Q → R : (¬Q →¬P) →(P →R) (9) (P & Q) →¬R : R →(P →¬Q) (11) P: [(¬(Q → R) →¬P)] →[( ¬R →¬Q)] (9) P, ¬Q: ¬ (P →Q) (6) P, ¬P : Q (8) : ¬P → (P →Q) (10) Law of Dun Scotus P → ¬P : ¬P (11) Last edited by skipjack; March 5th, 2017 at 04:54 AM.

Were you given a list of axioms? If so, what were they? If not, what method of proof were you taught?
