    Hey guys.

    I'm currently working on a circuit for school and i have arrived at this stage. I personally do not know where to go from this stage as there are 6 inputs and i have trouble with merely 2. Any help what so ever would be very much appreciated.

    The underlines being the nots:

    1. B.P.(D+S+F+M)
    2. D.M.(P+S+F+B) + D.B.(P+S+F+M) + D.M.B.(P+S+F)


    Thanks guys :)

    You need to start with DeMorgan's therorems. There are two of them. Then you need to express your formulas in the sum of products form. From this point there are a variety of techniques to minimize the expression. My favorite is the method of prime implicants.

    Good Luck

    Just so you know, 1 is in its simplest form.

    I'm struggling a little with the original question. Can you explain more precisely what you are trying to do? Part 2 can be simplified in one of several ways depending on what you are trying to achieve.

    I don't know if you know the OP or not, therefore this is inappropriate.

    have you learned abt kernaugh map or quinn mcclusky methods.
    wiyh those methods and a multiplexer you might be able to implement
    the logic with lesser inputs or atleast with a less complicated expression.
