Disjunctive syllogism, also known as Modus Tollendo Tollens is a rule of inference of Propositional logic that states that if P or Q is true and not P is true, then Q is true.

In standard rule form:

\frac{P \or Q, \neg P}{\therefore Q}

In sequent notation:

P \or Q, \neg P \vdash Q

It is the valid argument form: P or Q. Not P. Therefore, Q.
