The statements (a) and (b) are equivalents.

#### Work Step by Step

By using the following representation, \begin{align} & p:\text{ Im leaving} \\ & q:\text{ Tom is relieved} \\ & r:\text{ Sue is relieved} \end{align} The symbolic representation of the provided statements is (a)I’m leaving, and Tom is relieved or Sue is relieved: $p\wedge \left( q\vee r \right)$. (b)I’m leaving, and it is false that Tom and Sue are not relieved: $p\wedge \sim \left( \sim q\wedge \sim r \right)$. (c)If I’m leaving, then Tom is relieved or Sue is relieved: $p\to \left( q\vee r \right)$.
