Theorem consensus 925
Description: The consensus theorem. This theorem and its dual (with  \/ and  /\ interchanged) are commonly used in computer logic design to eliminate redundant terms from Boolean expressions. Specifically, we prove that the term  ( ps  /\  ch ) on the left-hand side is redundant. (Contributed by NM, 16-May-2003.) (Proof shortened by Andrew Salmon, 13-May-2011.) (Proof shortened by Wolf Lammen, 20-Jan-2013.)
