    You have represented your function as a Sum of Products. All's fine with that.

    By referring to the second canonical form I guess you mean Product of Sums. That can't always be done with simple boolean operations. Check this thread for more info:

    On the other post, shouldnt the F column read:
    1
    1
    1
    1
    0
    0
    1
    1

    I got that result just from reading, for example, ABC = 000 and A'B'C'=111 and that AC' = ABC' and AB'C'. Please let me know if im doing it wrong!
