Solution

Verified
Step 1
1 of 2

The $\textbf{\text{\textbar}\text{\textbar}}$ operator will take two (or more) operands, which can even be expressions, and returns a $\textbf{true}$ value only when $\text{\underline{at least one of the operands is true}}$. If all operands or expressions are false, it will return false.

True $\textbf{(1)}$ $\textbf{\text{\textbar}\text{\textbar}}$ True $\textbf{(1)}$ \textrightarrow True $\textbf{(1)}$

True $\textbf{(1)}$ $\textbf{\text{\textbar}\text{\textbar}}$ False $\textbf{(0)}$ \textrightarrow True $\textbf{(1)}$

False $\textbf{(0)}$ $\textbf{\text{\textbar}\text{\textbar}}$ True $\textbf{(1)}$ \textrightarrow True $\textbf{(1)}$

False $\textbf{(0)}$ $\textbf{\text{\textbar}\text{\textbar}}$ False $\textbf{(0)}$ \textrightarrow False $\textbf{(0)}$
