Problem 26E

The quantifier ∃n denotes "there exists exactly n,” so that means there exist exactly n values in the domain such that P(x) is true. Determine the true value of these statements where the domain consists of all real numbers. Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1:

In this problem, we need to determine the true value of these given statements.

Where we are given means there exists exactly n values in the domain such that P(x) is true and the domain consists of all real numbers.

(a): 0x (x2 = -1).

According to the given condition 0x (x2 = -1) means there exists exactly zero(0) value in the domain.

Clearly x2 = -1, is only possible in the complex numbers because x = is complex value.

Which is called i(iota).

Therefore, there is no value in the real numbers which is held this condition.

Hence the statement is true.

(b): 1x( )

According to the given condition 1x( )  means there exists exactly one(1) value in the domain.

So, we have one value zero for the condition = 0, which is held.

Hence the statement is true.

(c): 2x...
