In boolean algebra, when you have (X'+XY), it can be simplified to X'+Y. Now, by applying this rule to the inside of the parentheses in your answer, you have c' on one side of the "OR" and c on the other. So because of that, you can eliminate the c on the right-hand side.Sorry I just realized when checking replies I had made a typo on the answer I came up with in my post. Should be a(c'+b'cde) not c''.
Anytime randb. Glad to help!DerStrom8
Thank you
