hey steve its eva can you help me on homework #theoem24-28


 


exlpain, show work and verify your answer is correct, use truth table if needed, show defintion if needed,or used,


Definition 12. A statement of the form A and B (sometimes written A^B) is true exactly when A is true and B is true. A statement of the form A or B (sometimes written A\/B) is false exactly when A is false and B is false. A statement of the form A implies B, also known as “If A, then B,” and also written A => B, is false exactly when A is true and B is false. A statement of the form “not A” (sometimes written¬A, and also called the negation of A) is true exactly when A is false.


 


Definition 13. A statement of the form A if and only if B, sometimes written A iff B, or A<=>B or A is equivalent to B, means A implies B and B implies A.


 


Definition 16. The contrapositive of a statement of the form A => B is the statement¬B => ¬A.


Theorem 24. For all integers n, x and y, if n divides x, and n divides y, then n divides x+y.


Theorem 25. For all integers n, x, and y, if n divides x, and n divides y, then n divides(x-y).


Prove each of Propositions 26 and 27 using the contrapositive of the given statement:


Theorem 26. Assume x,y are integers. If xy is odd, then both x and y are odd.


Theorem 27. Assume x,y are integers. If xy is even, then x or y is even.


Theorem 28. Assume x and y are integers. Then xy is odd if and only if x and y are odd. (First, use the definition of equivalence to separate the “if and only if” into two separate statements. Then, prove each statement.)


if possible before friday 9/6/13 at 6pm

Hi,

Yes, i can do them before Friday

Can you add a tip of $10 ?

Thanks

Yes

Also i need the definitions for "n divides x ", "n odd" , "n even"

Thanks

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

these are the definitions from worksheet


Definition 1. An integer n is even if n=2k for some integer k.



Definition 2. An integer n is odd if n=2k+1 for some integer k.


Definition 5. An integer n divides the integer m, written n|m, if there exists another integer k such that m=nk. In the same context, we may also write that m is divisible
by n.

Ok, thanks

I will post the answers tomorrow
