## Theorem

- $\overline {T_1 \cap T_2} = \overline T_1 \cup \overline T_2$

## Proof

\(\ds \) | \(\) | \(\ds x \in \overline {T_1 \cap T_2}\) | ||||||||||||

\(\ds \) | \(\leadstoandfrom\) | \(\ds x \notin \paren {T_1 \cap T_2}\) | Definition of Set Complement | |||||||||||

\(\ds \) | \(\leadstoandfrom\) | \(\ds \neg \paren {x \in T_1 \land x \in T_2}\) | Definition of Set Intersection | |||||||||||

\(\ds \) | \(\leadstoandfrom\) | \(\ds \neg \paren {x \in T_1} \lor \neg \paren {x \in T_2}\) | De Morgan's Laws (Logic): Disjunction of Negations | |||||||||||

\(\ds \) | \(\leadstoandfrom\) | \(\ds x \in \overline {T_1} \lor x \in \overline {T_2}\) | Definition of Set Complement | |||||||||||

\(\ds \) | \(\leadstoandfrom\) | \(\ds x \in \overline {T_1} \cup \overline {T_2}\) |

By definition of set equality:

- $\overline {T_1 \cap T_2} = \overline {T_1} \cup \overline {T_2}$

$\blacksquare$
