Upon completion of this lesson, you will be able to simplify Boolean

expressions using Veitch diagrams.

Simplify Boolean expressions.

To demonstrate competency of this task, you must achieve a

minimum of 70% on the subcourse examination.

INTRODUCTION

This lesson is designed in the frame format. Throughout the lesson,

the pages are normally divided into two sections. The left section is

the answer/response section, and the right section is the lesson

section. In the left section, the answer for the previous frame (if

required) is printed there. In addition to the normal layout, some

frames have a detailed explanation and answer, and the answer/response

section indicates the pages for the detailed answers.

Veitch Diagrams are an additional tool to simplify Boolean expressions.

Some people have a difficult time reducing Boolean expressions using

just mathematics, and after using Veitch diagrams, they understand the

reduction process more clearly. From the instructional point of view,

you may be able to use the Veitch diagram method to help a soldier

learn other methods of reducing Boolean expressions.
