To deal with this complication we need the third basic idea of the proof. In getting back from the single decimal to the pair of decimals we take single digits alternately as before unless the digit is a zero: if it is a zero, we take the group of digits that begins with the zero and ends with the first digit that is not a zero. So splits up into and o·6I3I6I06I06I06I061 ... 0·660606 ... 0·30606 ... INTRODUCTION: GENERAL NOTIONS 39 So terminating decimals are avoided and we get our 1-1 correspondence between the set of points of the square (other than the points on AB or AD) and the set of all non-terminating decimals denoting real numbers >0 and ~1.

Definition. e. the set {T, F}. Or in other words: A truth function is a function whose arguments and values are truth values. Examples: 1. The function q that has as its domain the set of all twotermed sequences whose terms are from the set {T, F} and that has as its range the set {T, F}, and that is defined by the rule q{T, T) =T q(F, T) = F { q(T, F)= F q(F, F)= F is a truth function, viz. conjunction. 2. The function r that has truth values as arguments and values and is defined by the rule TRUTH-FUNCTIONAL PROPOSITIONAL LOGIC 49 r(T, T) =T { r(F, T) =T r(T, F) =F r(F, F) =T is a truth function, viz.

Then we do the same for rationals whose numerator and denominator add up to 4, and so on. , 4, -4, ... ) 2.
