A then B or C but not both

How would one write "A then B or C but not both"?
I usually use "A -> B/C not both" when solving games, but I was wondering if there is any other way to rewrite this statement.

According to our conditional translations, I think the statement could also be written as A -> (B<->/C), but it looks very weird...

Can anyone help? Thanks :)

    You can split it in to two sentences.

    A --> (B v C)
    B --> /C

    Your "weird" translation is correct though. I'd just use whichever feels most comfortable.

    @"Rigid Designator" Thank you for your reply.

    Do you mind answering one more question for me?

    Can
    A->C, B->C
    be written as
    A/B->C ?

    Because 'or' here is inclusive!?

    Yes, definitely.

    It looks like you got it figured out. Did you view the Advanced Logic videos? There are a few that would be helpful, including one specifically on "or, but not both".
