Confused about conditional statements and vectors?
A conditional statement is of the form A→B.
Truth tables suggest that the converse, B→A ≠ A→B.
It is also known that any two vectors A and B are perpendicular if and only if their dot products are zero.
My confusion is...
A dot B = 0 → A and B are perpendicular. The converse is also true. Why does this not agree with truth tables?

I just realized that "if and only if" is a biconditional statement, so the converse of A⇔B is also true.
I think this clears up my confusion, correct me if I'm wrong please.
