On an eight-square Veitch diagram, a one-

a.

variable term occupies four squares; a two-

variable term occupies two squares; a three-

variable term occupies only one square.

To

plot the expression DPQ+DPQ, work with only

one term at a time.

Start with the first

term on the left (DPQ).

To determine the

b.

proper square, take each variable of the term

(DPQ) and determine which square is common to

all three variables, as follows:

D = squares 3, 4, 7, and 8

P = squares 1,2, 3, and 4

c.

Q = squares 1, 5, 4, and 8

Square 4 is common to all variables of the

term DPQ.

Therefore, the plot for the term

DPQ is square 4, as shown below.

To complete the plot of the expression

DPQ+DPQ, the second term (DPQ) must still be

plotted.

Plot the second term (DPQ) in the

diagram above.
