A conditional statement is of the form A→B.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Truth tables suggest that the converse, B→A ≠ A→B.

It is also known that any two vectorsAandBare perpendicular if and only if their dot products are zero.

My confusion is...

AdotB= 0 →AandBare perpendicular. The converse is also true. Why does this not agree with truth tables?
