[tex] x \cap (y \cup z ) = (x \cap y) \cup ( x \cap z) [/tex]

this shoudln't be too difficult to prove if need be

so lanedance I can just say that if

[tex]x\cap z = z [/tex]

then the first equality holds?

[tex]x\cap z = z [/tex]

yeah, so

[tex] x\cap z = z \rightarrow[/tex]

[tex] x \cap (y \cup z ) = (x \cap y) \cup z [/tex]

you should convince yourself through venn diagrams or proof, why this is case

[tex] x\cap z = z \rightarrow[/tex]

[tex] x \cap (y \cup z ) = (x \cap y) \cup z [/tex]

you should convince yourself through venn diagrams or proof, why this is case
