Help me in a programme!

Hi pll!

I start today learn prolog, and I need your help.

I have this:
"There are three types of emissions: alpha, beta and gamma."
"If there is an alpha and beta emissions, then a proton was detected."
"If there is an emission gamma, then a proton was detected."

I have to translate this for prolog.

I tried this, but it´s wrong:

detected(X) :- emission(alfa), emission(beta).
detected(X) :- emission(gama).

Sorry for my bad english.

RE: Help me in a programme!

You were nearly at the solution :

CODE -->

detected(proton) :- emission(alfa), emission(beta).
detected(proton) :- emission(gama). 
You can write too :

CODE -->

detected(X) :- 
    % first case
    emission(alfa), emission(beta) ;
    % second case
Note that () are not necessary to enclose first case.
