This statement is only true during a sunshower. “A or B” says that it is clear or it is raining, or both: anything but the cloudy dry day. This is sometimes called an inclusive or, to distinguish it from the exclusive or “A xor B,” which says that it is either clear or raining, but not both. There is also the “not A” statement, which says that it is not clear. There is a very important relation between Boolean algebra and set theory. e. the intersection A ∩ B. e. the union A∪B. e. Ac . Because there are only two possible values (true and false), we can record all Boolean operations in a table.
