Boolean algebra question probably really easy for someone who knows what theyre doing

May seem easy, I can't do it though...

I'm given an identity to prove:-

(A + C).(notA + B) = A.B + notA.C

I've started with LHS, multiplied out and ended up with an extra B.C. I think this has something to do with the distribution rule but I don't know how to work it through

Any help greatly appreciated

JK

welcome to pf!

hi jksdvb8! welcome to pf! :smile:

so you need to prove that B.C is contained in A.B + notA.C

hint: multiply something by either (A + notA) or (C + notC) :wink:
