Mathematical Logic
• Symbolical representation
– and (∧), or (∨), implication (⇒),
equivalence (⇔), negation (¬ or ∼)
• Definitions:
– Tautology: A statement which is always
true for any truth values of component
statements is called as tautology
– Contradiction: A statement which is
always false for any truth values of
component statements is called as
Mathematical Logic
– Converse: converse of implication
p ⇒ q is q ⇒ p
– Inverse: Inverse of implication
p ⇒ q is ∼p ⇒ ∼q
– Contra positive: Contra positive of
p ⇒ q is ∼q ⇒ ∼p
• Possible questions are—
1. Convert given statement into symbols
2. Convert given statements into indicated
symbolic form
3. Verify using truth table
4. Verify or obtain truth values, if truth values of
component statements are known
1. Represent given statement using

1. Represent given statement using
Vein diagrams ( just use three facts)

X Y

Some x are y ⇔ some x are not y

Mathematical Logic
1. Write negation of the following
statements ( to do so use –
∀ ∼(p∧q) ⇔ (∼p∨ ∼q)
∀ ∼(p∨q) ⇔ (∼p∧ ∼q)
∀ ∼(p ⇒q) ⇔ (p ∨ ∼q)
∀ ∼(p⇔q) ⇔ ∼[(p ⇒q) ∧ (q ⇒p)]
⇔ [(p ∨ ∼q) ∨ (q ∨ ∼p)]
6. Note that negation of all is at least one
and of some is no
2. Write the dual: means replace ∧ by

Important results
• A vector is unit vector if its magnitude
is one
• To determine unit vector along AB if
point A & B are given use
– Find position vector of A and B, find b – a
thus you have vector AB now divide it by
its magnitude to get the answer.
• To determine vector perpendicular to
given two vectors
– To find this take cross product of the two
Important results
• To check whether given three points A,
B and C are collinear you can use—
– Cross product of AB and AC must be zero
– Using section formula we can prove
colinearity by showing that c = αa + βb
– Prove that AB = α.AC
• To check whether A,B,C and D are
coplanar you can use
– AB.(AC x AD) = 0
– AB = α.AC + β.AD
Important results
• Section formula: If P divides AB in ratio m:n
then position vector of P is (m.b+n.a)/(m+n):
– to prove the result use AP.n=PB.m (note the
direction). Use OA + AP = OP substitute AP =
m.PB/n and now use position vectors for relation
OA + m.PB/n =OP
– If P divides externally then AP.n=BP.m (note the
direction).

• Sine Rule: in triangle ABC
a/sin A = b/sin B =c/ sin C use AB + BC + CA = 0
and consider cross product with AB to get one
equality and then with AC to get other equate
one side of these equality and get the result by
dividing by proper fraction
• Cosine rule : Use AB + BC + CA = 0 hence
AB + BC = AC and equate magnitude of
both sides considering IABI = c, IBCI = a
and ICAI = b we get,
cos(A) = (b2 + c2 – a2)/2bc lly other results

direction cosine denoted by l, m and n
• l2 + m2 + n2 = 1 to prove this result let
P(x,y,z) be any point, let IOPI = r then using
definition of dot product OP.i = r cos α
= (xi+yj+zk).i = x
lly y = rcos β
and z = r cos γ square these results and add to get the
required result.
Important results

direction cosine then a,b and c are called
as direction ratio if a/l=b/m = c/n
• Relation between dr’ s and dc’s: If a,b
