Given the augmentation axiom and the decomposition axioms of functional dependencies and a relation of R(A,B,C) with an FD of: A -> B

I can augment A -> B with C to get AC -> BC.

Can I then decompose AC -> BC to get AC -> B?


Community wiki answer:

Yes. You can decompose to get AC -> B and AC -> C.
