De Morgan's Rules
− (A ∪ B) = − A ∪ − B, − (A ∩ B) = − A ∪ − B
Let me demonstrate why I'm confused about the first equality:
U = {1,2,3,4} A = {2} B = {3}
− (A ∪ B) = {1,4}
A = {1,3,4} B = {1,2,4}
− A ∪ − B = {1,2,3,4}
So you can see I don't see how the result is equal sets.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's because you've misstated DeMorgan's rules. The complement of the union is the INTERSECTION of the complements, not the union of the complements.
