# conjunction

A conjunction is true only when both parameters (called conjuncts) are true. In English, conjunction is denoted by the word “and”. Symbolically, we represent it as $\land$ or multiplication applied to Boolean parameters. Conjunction of $a$ and $b$ would be written

$a\land b$ |

$a\cdot b$ |

or

$ab$ |

The truth table for conjunction is

$a$ | $b$ | $a\land b$ |

F | F | F |
