# Implication is Left Distributive over Disjunction/Formulation 2

## Theorem

$\vdash \paren {p \implies \paren {q \lor r} } \iff \paren {\paren {p \implies q} \lor \paren{p \implies r} }$

## Proof

By the tableau method of natural deduction:

$\vdash \paren {p \implies \paren {q \lor r} } \iff \paren {\paren {p \implies q} \lor \paren {p \implies r} }$
Line Pool Formula Rule Depends upon Notes
1 1 $p \implies \paren {q \lor r}$ Assumption (None)
2 1 $\paren {p \implies q} \lor \paren {p \implies r}$ Sequent Introduction 1 Implication is Left Distributive over Disjunction: Formulation 1
3 $\paren {p \implies \paren {q \lor r} } \implies \paren {\paren {p \implies q} \lor \paren {p \implies r} }$ Rule of Implication: $\implies \II$ 1 – 2 Assumption 1 has been discharged
