Re: absorption laws:

It isn't quite the absorption law, because B' is inside the parentheses, while the quantity outside the parentheses is B. However, it is certainly true that \cup(A\cap B)=A" />, and that . From this, we can conclude that \cup B\supseteq A\cap B'\cup(A\cap B)=A" /> and then we can take the union of each side with B to derive \cup B\supseteq A\cup B" />. But we also have \cup B\subseteq A\cup B" /> trivially, and therefore \cup B=A\cup B" />.
