# Given below are two statements

p : 25 is a multiple of 5.

q : 25 is a multiple of 8.

Write the compound statements connecting these two statements with “And” and “Or”. In both cases check the validity of the compound statement.

Answer :

The compound statement connecting with “And” is

25 is a multiple of 5 and 8.

The above compound statement is false because 25 is a multiple of 5 but not a multiple of 8.

The compound statement connection with “Or” is

25 is a multiple of 5 or 8.
