``COURSE CODE:MTH 211COURSE TITLE:LOGIC AND LINEAR ALGEBRACLASS:ND2 CIVIL , MECHANICAL, ELECTRICAL AAND MECHANICALENGINEERING``

Define:
(i) premises (ii) contradiction (iii) tautology
What is a valid argument, hence establish the validity of the premises
P1: Alll engineering student are intelligent.
P2: Emmanuel is an engineering student
Let P: Mariam is an intelligent girl
Q: Mariam is able to provide solution to complicated problem.
S: Either mariam is an intelligent girl or she is not able to provide solution to the problem. Draw the truth table for S.
SOLUTION
PREMISES : Premises are proposition affirmed as providing grounds or reasons for accepting the conclusion.

CONTRACTION (absurdity): A statement form that only false substitution instances is called contradiction. A statement or proposition that contradicts or denies another or itself and is logically incongruous.
Is a situation or ideas in operation to one another. A contradiction is a sentence together with its negation, and a theory is inconsistent if it include a contradiction OR a statement or proposition that contradict or denies another or itself and is logically incongruous.

TAUTOLOGY : Is a formular that is true in all possible state.
Tautology is a formular which is always true. It opposite is contradiction. Tautology can also be define as a logical statement in which the conclusion is equivalent to the premise.
Examples of tautology are;
Either it will rain tomorrow, or it won’t rain.
Bill will win the election, or he will not win the election.
She is brave, or she is not brave.
[i]What is the valid argument? An argument is valid if the truth value of the premises logically guarantees the truth of the conclusion.
[ii] Hence use the valid argument to establish the validity of the premises.
If p2: All engineering student are intelligent
P2: Emmanuel is an engineering student.
Therefore, Emmanuel is intelligent.
The answer is: EMMANUEL IS INTELLIGEENT

(a) Define (i) Adjunct matrix (ii) identity matrix (iii) transpose matrix (iv) singular matrix
SOLUTION
ADJUNCT MATRIX: ADJUNCT MATRIX ( ALSO CALLED ADJUGATE MATRIX) is defined as the transpose of the cofactor matrix of that particular matrix.
IDENTITY MATRIX : is a n×n matrix or a square matrix in which all the elements of the principal diagonal are one’s [1’s] and all other elements are zero’s [0’s].
TRANSPOSE MATRIX: This is an operator which flips a matrix over its diagonal, that is it switches the row and column matrix by producing another matrix denoted as AT
SINGULAR MATRIX: Is a square matrix which is not invertible. Alternatively, a matrix is singular if and only the determinant is equal to zero.
(b) find the value of x for which IS A SINGULAR MATRIX
SOLUTION
A SINGULAR MATRIX IS A SAID TO BE A MATRIX IF THE DETERMINANT OF THAT PARTICULAR MATRIX IS EQUAL TO ZERO
FIRST FIND THE DETERMINANT OF THE MATRIX
= X + 3+2
X+3[X2 – 1] -0[X – 0] +2[1 – 0] = 0
X3 -X + 3X2 -3-0+2 =0
X3+ 3X2 -X-3+2 =0
X3 + 3X2 -X-1 =0

USING POLYNOMIAL,
F[X] = X3 + 3X2 -X-1 =0
We can only use a number ranging from 1 to 3 and -1 to -3
Reason is because they won’t give us a problem to solve exceeding this limit in other not to waste our time.
So solving for when X = 1 [ the main reason of substituting x as 1, is to get zero as our result after solving
F[X] = X3 + 3X2 -X-1
F = -13 + 3[-1]2 –[-1]-1
= -1+3+1-1
=2
When x = 2
F[X] = X3 + 3X2 -X-1
F = -23 + 3[-2]2 –[-2]-1
=5
When x = -3
F = -33 + 3[-3]2 –[-3]-1
=2
So also applies to when x = -1,-2,-3……….
Note: no value of x gives us zero therefore the problem can be solve only by remaining with no definite answer OR the problem has no answer

(a) If A= find AT OR A-1
Find the transpose of A
SOLUTION
IF A =
Then the transpose will be
DUE TO THE DEFINITION OF TRANSPOSE THAT SATS; A MATRIX IS SAID TO BE TRANSPOSE IF THE ROW OR ROWS AND COLUMN OR COLUMNS ARE INTERCHANGED.

(a) A committee of 9 is to be formed from 12 males and 9 females, the committee is to consist of five males and four females. In how many ways can this be done if;
no restriction
four particular male and female must not be included
SOLUTION
NOTE: No restriction simply not removing or adding any person in the committee, but solving it in the original way the committee appears.
So therefore male will go with male and female will go with female. n

Conjunction
Disjunction
Conditional statement
Bi-conditional statement
 CONJUNCTION: Is a compound statement formed by inserting the word `and’ between two statements. Two statements so combined are called conjunctions. Symbolically P^Q denotes the conjunction of the statement.  DISJUNCTION : IS a compound statement formed by inserting the word ‘or` between two statement . The two statement so combined are called disjunts or alternative symbolically PVa denotes the disjunction of statement p and a and is read as( p or a).
 condition statement : are made up of two parts a hypothesis[represented by p] and a conclusion statement is false if hypothesis is true and

the conclusion is false .The conditional is defined to be true unless a true hypothesis leads to a false conclusion.
 Bi-condition statement :is a combination of a conditional statemernt and it converse written in the if and only if form . A biconditional is true and only if both the conditions are true .

[2a] What is tautology and contradiction ? Hence verify whether [ p→Q] IS a tautology or contradiction .
CONTRACTION (absurdity): A statement form that only false substitution instances is called contradiction. A statement or proposition that contradicts or denies another or itself and is logically incongruous.
Is a situation or ideas in operation to one another. A contradiction is a sentence together with its negation, and a theory is inconsistent if it include a contradiction OR a statement or proposition that contradict or denies another or itself and is logically incongruous.

TAUTOLOGY : Is a formular that is true in all possible state.
Tautology is a formular which is always true. It opposite is contradiction. Tautology can also be define as a logical statement in which the conclusion is equivalent to the premise.
Examples of tautology are;

Transpose matrix
Symmetrical matrix
Singular matrix
Triangular matrix
IDENTITY MATRIX: is a n×n matrix or a square matrix in which all the elements of the principal diagonal are one’s [1’s] and all other elements are zero’s [0’s].
TRANSPOSE OF A MATRIX: This is an operator which flips a matrix over its diagonal, that is it switches the row and column matrix by producing another matrix denoted as AT
SYMMETRICAL MATRIX: Is a square matrix that is equal to its transpose.
If the transpose of a matrix is equal to itself, that matrix is said to be symmetric.
SINGULAR MATRIX: Is a square matrix which is not invertible. Alternatively, a matrix is singular if and only the determinant is equal to zero.
A TRIANGULAR MATRIX: Is a special kind of square matrix. A square matrix is called a lower triangular if all the entries above the main diagonal are zero. Similarly, a square matrix is called upper triangle if all the entries below the diagonal are zero.

Since,

``(b) A committee of 5 members is to be formed from 8 men and 9 women. How manyCommittees, of 5 members are possible if there will be (i) no restrictions (ii) 1 manand 4 women (iii) 3 men and 2 women such that a certain man must be on eachof the committee.``

SOLUTION
NOTE: No restriction simply not removing or adding any person in the committee, but solving it in the original way the committee appears.
So therefore male will go with male and female will go with female. n
