Iff

Revision as of 14:40, 19 April 2008 by I like pie (talk | contribs)

Iff is an abbreviation for the phrase "if and only if."

In order to prove a statement of the form, "$p$ iff $q$," it is necessary to prove two distinct implications:

  • $p$ implies $q$ ("if $p$, then $q$")
  • $q$ implies $p$ ("if $q$, then $p$")

If a statement is an "iff" statement, then it is a biconditional statement.
