    F = x_{1}x_{2} + x_{3}x_{4}

    This is a sum of product expression for a given function, can this be simplified any further?

    Does this answer your question?

    Perhaps this is semantics... but it does, in fact, make a difference for this problem: Your equation (F) assumes MINIMAL SOP which is a subset of SOP.

    Anyway, the fact is, it depends on the equation!

    Research Kmaps and you will understand better
