Lemma 22.3.5. Let $R$ be a ring. Let $(A, \text{d})$, $(B, \text{d})$ be differential graded algebras over $R$. Denote $A^\bullet $, $B^\bullet $ the underlying cochain complexes. As cochain complexes of $R$-modules we have

\[ (A \otimes _ R B)^\bullet = \text{Tot}(A^\bullet \otimes _ R B^\bullet ). \]

**Proof.**
Recall that the differential of the total complex is given by $\text{d}_1^{p, q} + (-1)^ p \text{d}_2^{p, q}$ on $A^ p \otimes _ R B^ q$. And this is exactly the same as the rule for the differential on $A \otimes _ R B$ in Definition 22.3.4.
$\square$
