Theorem dfun2 4117
 Description: An alternate definition of the union of two classes in terms of class difference, requiring no dummy variables. Along with dfin2 4118 and dfss4 4116 it shows we can express union, intersection, and subset directly in terms of the single "primitive" operation ∖ (class difference). (Contributed by NM, 10-Jun-2004.)

dfun2 (𝐴𝐵) = (V ∖ ((V ∖ 𝐴) ∖ 𝐵))

Proof of Theorem dfun2
Dummy variable 𝑥 is distinct from all other variables.
