### PT 61 LG Rule Interpretation

Alright, I've got a question with interpreting two rules together for the third game on PT 61.

3. ~U-->R2 (contra: ~R2-->U)

4. R2-->~U (contra: U-->~R2)

How do these work together?

Thanks!

What you have is correct.
You could chain them but that would just look confusing to me.

You can use a double arrow if you want. It functions as a block but it does not have to appear.

You can think of only 2 cases
1. Both ~U & R2
2. Neither of them(U & ~R2)

Correct me if I am dead wrong~

I don't know if there is anything to 'get'.
Do you understand these rules?

The game revolves around the fact that 4 out 5 individuals will participate, other rules introduce some additional
constraints regarding order and who is in and who is out.

I understand these rules, but I'm trying to figure out how the work together. Or, if they do at all.

Seriously, if anyone knows how to do this. I am terrified this will be on the test tomorrow and ruin a game.

Do you remember the phrase "A if and only if B" in LR? It is the same logic used in Game.
A <--> B
: A --> B (A only if B)
+
B --> A (A if B)

See what I am saying?
Only two scenarios can occur I said before
1) A and B (It does not matter A appear or B appear first)
or
2) Nothing

Do not worry too much about it and calm down. You will be okay.
P.S. Don't forget: Reverse Splitter Unite! Hope you get the score you want tomorrow~and have a nice sleep today

Aw thanks. I appreciate it. And yes, Reverse Splitters unite! I actually just re-did the game and felt a lot better about it. It is how you put it, but I think you can look at it kind of piece-meal too (checking each rule). It works better your way though. Thanks for the help and if you're taking it tomorrow, good luck!
