Let $\struct {R, +, \circ}$ be a commutative and unitary ring.

Let $\struct {A, \oplus, \circ}$ be its ring of idempotents.

Then $\struct {A, \oplus, \circ}$ is a Boolean ring.


From Ring of Idempotents is Idempotent Ring, $\struct {A, \oplus, \circ}$ is an idempotent ring.

By Unity is Unity in Ring of Idempotents, $\struct {A, \oplus, \circ}$ is also a unitary ring.

Hence, by definition, $\struct {A, \oplus, \circ}$ is a Boolean ring.
