Veitch diagrams are 10. Any expression can be converted to

used to simplify

minterm

form by using the.

following process:

Boolean expressions

a.

Break or remove the vincula: J+K=JK; C=C.

b.

Remove the parentheses: A(B+C) -AB+AC.

c.

Simplify within the term: ABCA=ABC;

ABCA=O.

The basic laws of Boolean

algebra (De Morgan's theorem, the

indempotent law, the associative law,

etc.) are used to complete this process.

Do not continue to simplify.

After these

steps are completed, the expression is in

minterm form.

Convert the following expressions to

minterm form.

a.

X+Y+AB

b.

JGPZ+G(J+P)

c.

R(S+T+U)+V+RST+UTV
