## Is a-> b-> c equivalent to a& b-> c?

and ask if we have also : if ⊢A→(B→C), then ⊢A→C. The answer is : **NO**. As showed in the above truth table, the formula (A→(B→C))→(A→C) is not a tautology (for A true and B and C false, it evaluates to false).

## WHY IS A implies B the same as not A or B?

For instance, logical implication: A implies B if whenever A is true, B is true too. It’s usually interpreted to mean (see discussion in Section 14.2) that **this can only be false when A is true and B is false**, so an equivalent proposition is “B or not A”.

## What is a implies b equivalent to?

In other words, A and B are equivalent exactly when both A ⇒ B and its converse are true. (A implies B) ⇔ (¬B implies ¬A). In other words, an implication is always equivalent to **its contrapositive**.

## Is a IFF b the same as B iff A?

a⟺b is equivalent to saying b⟹a and a⟹b. b⟺a is equivalent to saying b⟹a and a⟹b. So, clearly, as statements **they are the same**. Be cautious about confusing if statements with if and only if statements.

## Which of the following is equivalent to a converse?

If the converse is true, then the inverse is also logically true. If two angles are congruent, then they have the same measure. If two angles have the same measure, then they are congruent.

Converse, Inverse, Contrapositive.

Statement | If p , then q . |
---|---|

Converse | If q , then p . |

Inverse | If not p , then not q . |

Contrapositive | If not q , then not p . |

## Is P iff Q equivalent to not P iff not Q?

**p only if q means “if not q then not p, ” or equivalently, “if p then q.”** Biconditional (iff): The biconditional of p and q is “p if, and only if, q” and is denoted p q. It is true if both p and q have the same truth values and is false if p and q have opposite truth values.

## Is P iff Q the same as Q iff P?

It says that P and Q have the same truth values; **when “P if and only if Q” is true, it is often said that P and Q are logically equivalent**. In fact, when “P if and only Q” is true, P can subsitute for Q and Q can subsitute for P in other compound sentences without changing the truth.

IF AND ONLY IF.

P | Q | P if and only if Q |

F | T | F |

F | F | T |

## What does iff mean in math?

if and only if

Iff is an abbreviation for the phrase “**if and only if**.” In mathematical notation, “iff” is expressed as . It is also known as a biconditional statement. An iff statement means and. at the same time.

## Does only if mean biconditional?

**IF AND ONLY IF, is a biconditional statement, meaning that either both statements are true or both are false**. So it is essentially and “IF” statement that works both ways. Note that IF AND ONLY IF is different than simply ONLY IF.

## What does if mean in logic?

In logic and related fields such as mathematics and philosophy, “if and only if” (shortened as “iff”) is **a biconditional logical connective between statements, where either both statements are true or both are false**.

## Is iff a Scrabble word?

**Yes, iff is in the scrabble dictionary**.
