Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how can \[A  (B \cap C) = A  (A \cap B \cap C)\] doesn't sound right....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A part of \(B \cap C\) is not in A. So I don't know if that's right. I'm not even sure if the question even has an answer...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1wow there aren't too many details & i'm just thinking about all the possibilities... :/dw:1351175508673:dwdw:1351175580930:dw And it goes on & on & on. The answer can be anything....can't it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1They are Venn diagrams...the first one showing B as a subset of A & C only sharing a small part with B and A (B intersection C). The second one is one example(possibility) where B & C are subsets of A....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's what I'm trying to say. you're question doesn't say anything about what kind of sets A B & C are..so I have to consider all thhe possibilities.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you can't assume

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you actually just use the formula for set difference \[A  B \implies A \cap B'\]
