2a. Rules for computing z ( f (x, y)), making use of z(x) and h(y). 2b. Rules for computing z(&)), making use of z(x). ) It is not hard to see that there can be at most one function h on C meeting all the given requirements. But it is possible that no such hexists; the rules may be contradictory. For example, let U = the set of real numbers, B = IOl, f ( x , y > = x my, g(x) = x 1. + Then C is the set of natural numbers. Suppose we impose the following requirements on h: Then no such function h can exist.

Show that E t iff every truth assignment for S which satisfies every member of E also satisfies t. (This is an easy consequence of part (a). The point of part (b) is that we do not need to worry about getting the domain of a truth assignment exactly perfect, as long as it is big enough. For example, one option would be always to use truth assignments on the set of all sentence symbols.
