Hello everyone

Is there anyone out there who knows any good websites in explaining how to create 5 variable karnaugh maps?

of course if u want to answer this "impossible" question for me and explain how it is done then please do so!, see below. :D

"Come up with a minimised equation using a 5 variable karnaugh map using these minterms (ABCDE) = (0,1,4,5,13,15,20,21,22,23,24,26,28,30,31)"

Brace yourself for the detailed explaination here on All About Circuit:

All About Circuits: Karnaugh Maps

The key to 5-variable maps is that if you go "into" the page of a minterm, you will appear in the minterm mirrored on the other side of the 5-variable map.

Have a go and post your answer if you like.
