Theorem mtpxor 1870
Description: Modus tollendo ponens (original exclusive-or version), aka disjunctive syllogism, similar to mtpor 1869, one of the five "indemonstrables" in Stoic logic. The rule says: "if 𝜑 is not true, and either 𝜑 or 𝜓 (exclusively) are true, then 𝜓 must be true". Today the name "modus tollendo ponens" often refers to a variant, the inclusive-or version as defined in mtpor 1869. See rule 3 on [Lopez-Astorga] p. 12 (note that the "or" is the same as mptxor 1868, that is, it is exclusive-or df-xor 1638), rule 3 of [Sanford] p. 39 (where it is not as clearly stated which kind of "or" is used but it appears to be in the same sense as mptxor 1868), and rule A5 in [Hitchcock] p. 5 (exclusive-or is expressly used).
