I got true for the question but the answer is false can someone please explain why its false? (A − C) − (B − C) = A − B.?
For this question I drew Venn diagrams for both sides to see if they matched and they didn't. I was told to use a membership table to see why its false. I know membership tables are like truth tables, but how do you make a membership table when there are subtraction signs in the question?
CORRECTION: Sorry I meant I got false for the answer and the correct answer is TRUE.

Remove the brackets...
A - C - B + C
= A - B
YOU are correct.... their answer is wrong.

Two negatives make a positive so - (-C) is +C.
Then A - C - B + C and the C's cancel out.

Order of operation. You do the stuff in parentheses first, THEN the rest. Using (this is just an example) A=5, B=4, and C=1, doing it correctly, the answer would reduce to 1. Doing it like A-C-B-C will yield -1.
