Hi there, I have been stuck on this maths question for a long time, I do not know how to figure it out. All I know is that I have to use Boolean algebra. The Question is: Prove, using Boolean algebra, that (A+B)(A+notB) = A. I would really appreciate if someone could show me how to do this. Thanks.

Using ¬ to denote NOT, (A + B)·(A + ¬B) = A·A + B·A + A·¬B + B·¬B = A + A·(B + ¬B) + 0 = A + A·1 = A + A = A.
