Truth Table Statement and Argument

Write the statements in symbolic form
p: The temperature is 90deg.
q: The air conditioner is working
r: The apartment is hot.

In exercises 7-16 construct a truth table for the statements:
~ (~p←>q)

Sec. 3.5 #40
Translate the argument into symbolic form and (b) determine if the argument is valid or invalid. You may compare the argument to a standard form or use a truth table.
