Homework Help: Rules of implication

  1. Apr 13, 2012 #1
    Suppose I know that [(P implies ~A) and (P implies B) and (P implies C)] is impossible. Does this means that the following statement is true: [(P implies A) and (P implies B) and (P implies C)]?

    Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

    so basically you are asking if (P implies ~A) implies that (P implies A) and it does not..

    I guess you're right! P cannot imply both A and ~A...
