Over a commutative ring, the tensor product of two flat modules is flat

Let R be a commutative ring and let M and N be R-modules. Show that if M and N are flat over R, then M \otimes_R N is flat over R.


This is a special case of the previous exercise, since both M and N can naturally be considered (R,R)-bimodules.
