Most of the results on google happily prove A+(B.C) = (A+B).(A+C), which is that OR is distributive (over AND).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

But as part of their proof, they use the law that AND is distributive (over OR), namely that

A.(B+C) = (A.B)+(A.C) which I can't seem to find any algebraic proof for.

So are there any ways to prove this lawwithoutusing a truth table or venn diagram?
