Veitch diagrams provide a quick-and-easy way

for simplifying Boolean expressions.

A

Veitch diagram is a system of squares on

which a given Boolean expression is plotted

in order to arrive at the simplest form of

the expression.

Veitch diagrams are used to____________

simplify

2.

A MINTERM is defined as "the Boolean product

of a number of variables."

No OR operations

are contained in a minterm, but all the given

variables must be included.

If there are three variables, A, B, and C,

the following are three possible minterms:

CAB, ABC, ACB.

If there are four variables,

L, M, N, and X, the following are three

possible minterms:

LMNX, XMLN, NLMX.

If there are five variables, X, Y, Z, P, and

D, which of the following are minterms?

a.

X+Y+Z+P+D

f.

DPZXY

b.

ZYPXD

g.

X+XYZPD

c.

YZPX

h.

XY+D(P+Z)

d.

YP+XZD

I.

ZDP XY

e.

XYZPD
