What Are Conjunctions in Logic Tables? Conjunctions are a part of logic or truth tables. Conjunction is also a compound statement, just like the other statements that are part of the logic tables. Conjunctions are represented using the word 'and.' Consider the example of the following two statements: p = It is raining outside, q = The football game is cancelled. The conjunction of the above two statements will be formed as 'It is raining outside, and the football game is cancelled.' Now, this statement will only be true if both p and q are true, which means that if it is raining outside and the football game is cancelled. If either of the statements p or q turns out to be false, then the conjunction is false. Conjunctions can be understood by the following examples; 1. The USA has 52 states. 2. The American flag has a green color in it. 3. 7 + 3 = 11. The conjunctions are: The USA has 52 states, and the American flag has red color in it --> True. The American flag has green color in it, and 7 + 3 = 11 --> False. The USA has 52 states, and 7 + 3 = 11 --> True. This selection of worksheets shows students how to understand compound math sentences that join two simple sentences.
