Discrete Mathematics and its Application

Am not understanding , how to do the truth or Venn diagram to show a statement pv(q^r)is equivalent to (pvq)^(pvr). How can I show the statement is not equivalent to (pvq)^r.
I have to explain my answer in truth or Venn diagram, but my problem really is Word Problem, and that were I messup at? Please help. I need a step by step of what I'm suppose to do.

  1. By "truth" do you mean a truth table? If so, just list the 8 rows and the 8 values of the functions, and it is easy to show which are equivalent.

    1-Explain how you can use a number line to show that 3/6 and 1/2 are equivalent fractions. my son write- you can show these fractions are equivalent because if the numerator is half of the denomirator it can be 1/2 so 3/6 is just
