Problem 17E

Show that the argument with premises "The tooth fairy is a real person" and "The tooth fairy is not a real person" and conclusion "You can find. gold at the end of the rainbow" is a valid argument. Does this show that the conclusion is true?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution:Step1Given thatPremises "The tooth fairy is a real person" and "The tooth fairy is not a real person" and conclusion "You can find. gold at the end of the rainbow".Step2We have to show that the argument with premises "The tooth fairy is a real person" and "The tooth fairy is not a real person" and conclusion "You can find. gold at the end of the rainbow" is a valid argument. Does this show that the conclusion is trueStep3We have"The tooth fairy is a real person" and "The tooth fairy is not a real person" and conclusion "You can find. gold at the end of the rainbow".Along these lines, the contention with premises are valid, on the grounds that they are opposing contention. Along these lines doubtlessly at whatever point all the contention with premises are valid, the conclusion is additionally valid, which by definition makes this a substantial contention. Since, the contention with premises are not both genuine, we are not ready to reason that the conclusion is valid.
