 P: 1,629 Hello everyone! I was wondering if someone could check to see if i did this problem correctly. THe directions are the following: Fid the truth set of each predicate. predicate: 1 <= x^2 <= 4, domain: Z. Where Z stands for integers and <= stands for less than or equal to. The book did an example of the following: predicate: 1 <= x^2 <= 4, domain: R. There answer was: The truth set is the set of all real numbers x, with the properlty that 1 <= x^2 <= 4, so the truth set is {x e R|-2 <= x <= -1 or 1 <= x <= 2 }. In other words, the truth set is the set of all real numbers between -2 and -1 inclusive and between 1 and 2 inclusive. Now for my problem, wouldn't the answer be the exact same thing but instead write: The truth set is the set of all real numbers x, with the properlty that 1 <= x^2 <= 4, so the truth set is {x e Z|-2 <= x <= -1 or 1 <= x <= 2 }. In other words, the truth set is the set of all integers between -2 and -1 inclusive and between 1 and 2 inclusive. note: e stands for element of. I need to find the latex for all this so it will be clearer. Whats the major difference between real numbers and integers anyways? Thanks! :D
