If the entity set is 2NF, the classifier tries to find for the rule to be matched in decision tree and if it matches with the rules of 1NF, the classifier tries to find the match the rules of 2NF, if there is a match, it further finds for match with the rules of 3NF and if the rules of 3NF is not matched with the entity set, the classifier declares the result that the classification of normal form is 2NF.
Most of the recent works on database normalization are web-based tools without presenting algorithms and define the two notions, 2NF and 3NF, with respect to primary keys only, ignoring the other candidate keys as in [2], [3, [4], [5].
The most important of them are 3NF (Third Normal Form) [2] and BCND (Boyce-Codd Normal Form) [3]), where BCNF is a stronger definition of 3NF.
We show that, when F satisfies the intersection property, the notions of 2NF and 3NF are equivalent.
