    New to this boolean stuff. Can anyone tell me if these look correct. Thanks for helping me learn.


    !(x<5) && !(y >=7)
    !(x<5) && !(y >=7)
    x>5 && y<7


    and also,


    !(a==b) || !(g !=5)
    a!=b || g==5

    Thanks,
    John

    From above,

    Shouldn't the final result be as follows?

    (Considering the case where x=5.)

    Oops! :confused: Missed that one, indeed you must take account of the condition where x=5 as alhirzel has pointed out.
