a kind person directed me here from the welcome threads to pose my questions for logic. i have a few problems that i have been boggling over within this week. each have to be solved using only the rules of inference. as obvious as it may be, i am very new to this and i am trying to understand. any help would be greatly appreciated!

Don't you have a textbook? This is quite basic stuff and you should be able to figure it out simply by reading a textbook. I could do the proofs for you, but what would that help?

that's just it, i don't understand the text book! i read the chapter and none of it makes sense. i am attempting to find a tutor i can contact. i understand your argument, however! i said "any help" so encouraging me to read perhaps falls under that category too.

I can send you another textbook if you want. Just PM me your email.
