How do you prove this? =(A\cap B) \cap (A\cap C)'" /> This is how i am approaching it but im stuck a one point: So lets have " />, which means that and" />, this also means that and , Then we have: and so . But what do i do with the ? Also my teacher said we have to show for both LHS and RHS. If i start with RHS this time it becomes weirder. let , this means that and which gives , and . How is this possible when and we have . Im so confused with this proof. Similarly how do you prove: Can anyone help me understand this clearly?? will appreciate any help.

Thank you very much for the help. Ok i see the proof using the algebra of sets, could you also please give me a proof using the elements for example, by beginning with : let etc... and show from there. I tried to prove it set algebraically but my teacher said i should be using the proof as i mentioned like above in my post.
