MGF 1106 Test 2 Review and Practice Solutions

You will need to have your own calculator for the test.
You may not share calculators or use any type of communication device in place of a calculator. Tests may not be made up for any reason other than a mandatory school – sponsored activity for which you must miss class. If you miss one test for any other reason, your final exam score will be substituted for that test. A second missed test is a zero. No homework bonuses are awarded on a test when the final exam is substituted or you receive a zero on a missed test. It is always possible that some questions may not be exactly like those on the practice test (objectives will remain unchanged). Some of these questions may ask you to analyze or synthesize what we’ve learned but if you prepare by studying your notes and your worksheets (as well as this review), you will be ready to complete those questions as well. Be sure you know the vocabulary listed in the Test 2 Vocabulary Handout. Some vocabulary questions will be on the exam.

Questions on the test will be in a random order and not the order that appears in this review.

Be sure to complete each assignment with a score of at least 80% to receive the 10 point bonus.

The following formulas will be provided.
The circumference of a circle is C = πd The area of a circle is A = πr2 The volume of a box is 𝑉=𝑙𝑤ℎ Shape Area Square A = s2 Rectangle A = lw Triangle A = 1 2 𝑏ℎ Parallelogram A = bh Trapezoid A = 1 2 (a + b)h

Work from simplest → complex to construct the truth table.
Important Ideas 1) Construct truth tables Work from simplest → complex to construct the truth table. 2) Determine the truth value of a given statement given specific truth values. Or: True when at least one is true And: Only true if both are true If/Then: False only for True → False If and Only If: True for True ↔ True, False ↔ False 3) Determine under which conditions a compound statement is true. Use a truth table. 4) Determine if a statement is a tautology, self – contradiction, or neither. Tautology – all final table values are true Self – Contradiction – all final table values are false 5) Determine if two statements are equivalent. Final truth values are the same (the right most columns) 6) Write the converse, inverse, and contrapositive of a conditional statement. Converse of p → q: q → p Inverse of p → q: ~p → ~q Contrapositive of p → q : ~q → ~p 7) Negate conditional statements. ~ (p → q) ≡ p ∧~q 8) Negate compound statements. ~ (p ∧ q) ≡ ~p ∨ ~q ~ (p ∨ q) ≡ ~p ∧ ~q 9) Recognize specific forms of valid and invalid arguments. Be sure you know the chart in the section 3.7 notes. 10) Form a valid conclusion based on specific premises. See above. 11) Use an Euler diagram to determine the validity of an argument. For an argument to be invalid, you need only to find one diagram that shows the argument is invalid. 12) Solve problems involving complementary and supplementary angles The sum of the measures of two complementary angles is 90. The sum of the measures of two supplementary angles is 180. 13) Solve problems involving angle relationships in triangles.

Note: In order to work some problems on the test, you must construct truth tables. You should be able to construct “p, q” and “p, q, r” truth tables from scratch. This means that you must make sure you memorize the initial columns: p q r T T T T T F T F T T F F F T T F T F F F T F F F p q T T T F F T F F

Practice Test Solutions

1) Construct a truth table for the following statements.
a) p ∧ (~p ∨ q) p q ~p (~p ∨ q) p ∧ (~p ∨ q) T T F T True T F False F T F F

b) (p↔q)→(p∧r) p q r p↔q p∧r (p↔q)→(p∧r) T T T T True T T F F False T F T T F F F T T F T F F F T F F F

2) Determine the truth value for each statement when p is true, q is true, and r is false.
~p ∨ ~q ~T ∨ ~T F ∨ F False b) (p ∨ r)→ ~(p ∧ q) (T ∨ F)→ ~(T ∧ T) T→ ~T T→ F False c) ~[(p↔q) ∨ (q→~r)] ~[(T↔T) ∨ (T→~F)] ~[T ∨ (T→T)] ~[T ∨ T] ~T False

The statement is true when both p and q have the same truth values.
3) Consider the statement “If you do a little bit each day then you’ll get by, and if you do not do a little bit each day then you won’t (get by).”   Under what conditions is the statement true? p: You do a little bit each day q: You get by (𝑝→𝑞)∧(~p → ~q) p q 𝑝→𝑞 ~p ~q ~p → ~q (𝑝→𝑞)∧(~p → ~q) T T T F True T F False F T F F The statement is true when both p and q have the same truth values. In other words, the statement is true when p and q are both true and when p and q are both false

4) Consider the statement (p ∧ q) ∧ (~p ∨ ~q)
4) Consider the statement (p ∧ q) ∧ (~p ∨ ~q). Is the statement a tautology, self – contradiction, or neither a tautology nor a self - contradiction? p q 𝑝 ∧ 𝑞 ~p ~q ~p ∨ ~q (p ∧ q) ∧ (~p ∨ ~q) T T T F False T F F T F F The statement is a self – contradiction since all final truth values are false.

Not equivalent since the final truth values do not match up.
5) Consider the statements (p ∨ r)→ ~ q, (~p ∧ ~r )→q. Are the statements equivalent? p q r p ∨ r ~ q (p ∨ r)→ ~ q ~p ~r ~p ∧ ~r (~p ∧ ~r )→q T T T T F T T F T F T T F F F T T F T F F F T F F F Not equivalent since the final truth values do not match up.

6) Write the converse, inverse, and contrapositive of each statement.
a) If today is Monday, then I do not have to go to school. Converse: If I do not have to go to school, then today is Monday. Inverse: If today is not Monday, then I have to go to school. Contrapositive: If I do have to go to school, then today is not Monday. b) If all birds fly south for the winter, then some bird-watchers are not happy. Converse: If some bird-watchers are not happy, then all birds fly south for the winter. Inverse: If some birds do not fly south for the winter, then all bird watchers are happy. Contrapositive: If all bird watchers are happy, then some birds did not fly south for the winter.

7) Negate the following statement.
If today is Monday, then I do not have to go to school. It is Monday and I do have to go to school.

8) Negate the following statements.
a) I practice the piano or I play outside. I don’t practice the piano and I don’t play outside. b) I apply myself and I don’t disappoint my parents. I don’t apply myself or I disappoint my parents.

9) Determine if each argument is valid or invalid.
a) If we sing loudly, then the neighbors will hear us. If the neighbors hear us, then the neighbors will smile. ∴ If the neighbors are smiling, then we sung loudly. Invalid: Misuse of Transitive b) If it is Thanksgiving, then I will not skip dessert. I skipped dessert. ∴ It is not Thanksgiving. Valid: Contrapositive. c) He is here or I am working from home. He is here. ∴ I am not working from home. Invalid: Misuse of disjunctive

10) Give a valid conclusion based on the premises.
a) If I am a full-time student, I cannot work. If I cannot work, I must budget my money carefully. I am a full time student. Therefore, …I must budget my money carefully. b) If a person is older than nine, then that person must pay the adult price to enter the Magic Kingdom. Becca did not pay the adult price to enter the Magic Kingdom. Therefore, …Becca is not older than nine. c) JoAnn is hungry or Bella is tired. JoAnn is not hungry. Therefore, …Bella is tired.
