Use algebraic manipulation to prove that xy + yz + x!z = xy + x!z (Note that this is the consensus property in section 2.5) [This is the property they are talking about:xy + yz + x!z = xy + x!z]

So I have:

xy + yz + x!z = xy + x!z

I'm lost.. Do they want me to factor? the left hand side first? or am I just making the left hand side look like the righty(x + z) + x!z?thus:yx +yz + x!z = xy + yz + x!z?

or do they want somethinglike x(y + z) + x!

Is this correct?
