Using the rules of inference listed above, we can construct a justification for the argument. We use here the two-column format that may be familiar from high school geometry proofs, 28 1 Informal Logic in which each line is labeled by a number, and is given a justification for why it is true in terms of previous lines and rules of inference; no justification is needed for the premises. ) Our justification for the argument is (1) (C ∨ E) → ¬M (2) R → M (3) C (4) C ∨ E (5) ¬M (6) ¬R (3), Addition (1), (4), Modus Ponens (2), (5), Modus Tollens.

We now face an important question: given an argument, we have two notions of whether the argument works, which are that it is or is not valid, and that it is or is not derivable. The former notion involves checking truth values (which is done with truth tables), the latter constructing a chain of statements linked by rules of inference. What is the relation between these two approaches? Though it is not at all obvious, nor easy to prove, it turns out quite remarkably that these two approaches, while different in nature, always yield the same result.

Which of the following statements are tautologies, which are contradictions and which are neither? (1) If John eats a blueberry pizza, then he either eats a blueberry pizza or he does not. (2) If John either eats a blueberry pizza or he does not, then he eats a blueberry pizza. (3) If pigs have wings and pigs do not have wings, then the sun sets in the east. (4) If Ethel goes to the movies then Agnes will eat a cake, and Agnes does not eat cake, and Ethel goes to the movies. (5) Rabbits eat cake or pie, and if rabbits eat pie then they eat cake.
