    This is my last problem for my homework and I can't seem to get it at all. I know the answer, but I really have no clue how to get there. I've read through the chapter and keep flipping to try and figure it out but my classmate and I still do not understand.

    Here it is,

    (A+B'+C+E')(A+B'+D'+E)(B'+C'+D'+E')

    The problem just wants it to be simplified algebraically to a minimum sum of products, and it tells us 5 terms.

    The answer is (AE'+AC'+B'+CD'+D'E) but I would like to know how to actually get there even if I wasn't given the answer.

    Thank you for the help!
