Predicate Logic

... This means that ∀xP (x) ∧ ∀xQ(x) is true. If ∀xP (x) ∧ ∀xQ(x) is true, then ∀x(P (x) ∧ Q(x)) is true. Proof: Suppose that ∀xP (x) ∧ ∀xQ(x) is true. It follows that ∀xP (x) is true and ∀xQ(x) is true. So, if a is in the domain, then P (a) is true and Q(a) is true. It follows that if a is in the domai ...
