Proof by contradiction example 2 Rosen, section 1. 5, question 21 (b) n Prove that if n is an integer and n 3+5 is odd, then n is even n Rephrased: If n 3+5 is odd, then n is even Thus, p is “n 3+5” is odd, q is “n is even” Assume p and q n Assume that n 3+5 is odd, and n is odd Since n is odd: n n=2 k+1 for some integer k (definition of odd numbers) n n 3+5 = (2 k+1)3+5 = 8 k 3+12 k 2+6 k+6 = 2(4 k 3+6 k 2+3 k+3) n As n = 2(4 k 3+6 k 2+3 k+3) is 2 times an integer, n must be even n Thus, we have concluded q Contradiction! n n We assumed q was false, and showed that this assumption implies that q must be true As q cannot be both true and false, we have reached our contradiction

A note on that problem… Rosen, section 1. 5, question 21 n n Prove that if n is an integer and n 3+5 is odd, then n is even Here, our implication is: If n 3+5 is odd, then n is even The indirect proof proved the contrapositive: ¬q → ¬p n I. e. , If n is odd, then n 3+5 is even The proof by contradiction assumed that the implication was false, and showed that led to a contradiction n n If we assume p and ¬q, we can show that implies q The contradiction is q and ¬q Note that both used similar steps, but are different means of proving the implication

How the book explains proof by contradiction A very poor explanation, IMHO Suppose q is a contradiction (i. e. is always false) Show that ¬p→q is true n n Since the consequence is false, the antecedent must be false Thus, p must be true Find a contradiction, such as (r ¬r), to represent q Thus, you are showing that ¬p→(r ¬r) n Or that assuming p is false leads to a contradiction
