Question about "or" statements

In this question, I created a chain combining relevant rules: (F or V) -> not T->not M->not R->L. I understand that V being present is sufficient to know that T, M, and R are all not in. But if F and V are in, would it still activate the same chain of rules depicted above? Generally speaking, if you have both variables in an "or" statement in the sufficient condition, such as F or V in this example, would having both present still guarantee the necessary condition of not T?

@mahosmar, great question. Having both present would still guarantee the necessary condition of not T. The 'or' in question is an inclusive one, so 'F or V' means F, V, or both. As long as at least one of F or V is in, then the necessary is triggered. If both are in, the necessary is still triggered.

Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any other questions!
