Definition 3.4 Let P Q be a conditional proposition. This proposition has the following three derivatives( 衍生命題 ): 1.The converse( 逆命題 ) Q P, 2.The inverse( 否命題 ) (~P) (~Q) 3.The contrapositive( 逆反命題 ) (~Q) (~P) 1.Make the truth tables for these four propositions. 2.Are they equivalent? 1.Make the truth tables for these four propositions. 2.Are they equivalent?
Proof by contrapositive( 反證法 ) P Q (~Q) (~P) Example 1 If n 2 is an even integer then n is an even integer. Proof: If n is odd, then n = 2k + 1 and (2k + 1) 2 = 4k 2 + 4k + 1 = 2(2k 2 + 2k) + 1 is odd. Thus by contrapositive, the proposition is correct.
Example 2 Given that p and m are real numbers such that p 3 +m 3 =2, prove that p + m 2. Proof: Assume that p+m>2, then p 3 +m 3 >(2-m) 3 +m 3 =6m 2 -12m+8 =6(m-1) 2 +2 2. Thus, by contrapositive, p + m 2.
Proof by contradiction( 歸謬法 ) (~P) F Example 3.3 Use the method of contradiction to prove that 2 is irrational. Proof: Suppose that 2 is not irrational, then 2 = p/q for some natural numbers p, q where (p, q) = 1. Since 2 =p 2 /q 2, therefore 2q 2 =p 2. This implies that 2|p 2 and hence 2|p. So p=2k for some integer k. Putting it back to 2q 2 =p 2, 2q 2 =(2k) 2 i.e. q 2 =2k 2. Again, we have 2|q and 2|(p, q), which is a contradiction. Class work : Use the method of contradiction to prove that 3 is irrational.
Theorem (proved by Euclid): There are infinitely many prime numbers. Proof: Assume there are only n prime numbers, say p 1, p 2, p 3, …,p n. Now construct a new number p= p 1 p 2 p 3 … p n + 1, then p is a new prime number since p is not divisible by p i ’ s and p > p i ’ s. This leads to a contradiction that p 1, p 2, p 3, …,p n are the only prime numbers. So there are infinitely many prime numbers.
Examples of proof by contradiction Examples of proof by contradiction ~(P Q) ~( (~P) Q) P (~Q) F 1.If x= 2, then x is irrational. Proof: Assume that x= 2 and x is not rational, then … 2.If a + b 2 = c + d 2, then b = d. Proof: Assume that a + b 2 = c + d 2 but b d, then 2 = (a – c)/(d – a), which is rational and hence is a contradiction. Thus b = d. P.65, Q.6
Illustrative Examples 3.If ABC is a acute triangle and A> B> C, prove that B> 45 . Proof: Assume that ABC is a acute triangle and B 45 , then C < 45 . But A=180 - B- C > 90 leads to a contradiction that ABC is a acute triangle. Thus,by the method of contradiction, B> 45 .
Illustrative Examples 4.If x=n and y=n+1, then x and y are relatively prime. Proof: Assume that x=n and y=n+1 and x and y have common factor other than 1, say f, then n=fg and n+1=fh. So 1 = f(h-g) and hence f=1, which is a contradiction. Thus the proposition is true..
5.Given that a, b,c and d are real numbers and ad-bc=1, prove that a 2 +b 2 +c 2 +d 2 +ab+cd 1. Proof: Assume that a, b,c and d are real numbers and ad-bc=1, but a 2 +b 2 +c 2 +d 2 +ab+cd=1, then a 2 +b 2 +c 2 +d 2 +ab+cd=ad-bc. Multiplying it by 2, we get 2a 2 +2b 2 +2c 2 +2d 2 +2ab+2cd- 2ad+2bc=0 i.e.(a+b) 2 +(b+c) 2 +(c+d) 2 +(a-d) 2 =0 a+b=b+c=c+d=a-d=0 i.e.a=b=c=d=0, which contradict to that ad-cd=1. Thus, by the method of contradiction, a 2 +b 2 +c 2 +d 2 +ab+cd 1.

Sometimes the proposition is conditional i.e. P Q, We need to negate it in order to prove it by contradiction.i.e. ~ (P Q) F. But ~ (P Q) ? (Hint: Find an equivalent statement for P Q which involves P, Q, ~ and .)

Definition 3.2 When the conditional proposition P Q is always true, we write P Q and read as P implies Q. For instance, it is correct to write “ x = 2 x 2 = 4 ”, but incorrect to write “ x + a = b x = a + b ”
Definition 3.3 Let P Q be a conditional proposition. Then P is called the sufficient condition ( 充分條件 ) for Q, and Q is the necessary condition( 必要條 件 ) for P.
