hi everybody,
the proff. assigned us this:
"Design a gate logic circuit to provide an output of 1 (true) when any two or more of the four inputs are 1"
plz help me approach this X)

Perhaps you should start with a truth table? From there a Karnough map should be elementary.

Hello gonkar

Read carefuly your original statement:
"Design a logic gate circuit to Provide an output of 1 (true) When two or more Any of the four inputs are 1"

This statement suggests several things:
1 - The circuit has 4 inputs.
2 - Two of them, either, if they are 1 the output should be 1.
3 - Naming the inputs as 1, 2, 3, 4, the possible combinations (any two) would
1 & 2, 1 & 3, 1 & 4.
2 & 3, 2 & 4.
3 & 4.
Right?

Because:
1, 2, 3, 4.------ Out
0, 0, 0, 0 -------- 0
0, 0, 0, 1 -------- 0
0, 0, 1, 0 -------- 0
0, 0, 1, 1 -------- 1 ----------( 3 & 4) Any Two.
0, 1, 0, 0 -------- 0
0, 1, 0, 1 -------- 1 ----------( 2 & 4) Any Two.
0, 1, 1, 0 -------- 1 ----------( 2 & 3) Any Two.
0, 1, 1, 1 -------- 1 ----------( 2 & 3) Or (2 & 4) or (3 & 4) Any Two Or More.
1, 0, 0, 0 -------- 0
1, 0, 0, 1 -------- 1 ----------( 1 & 4) Any Two.
1, 0, 1, 0 -------- 1 ----------( 1 & 3) Any Two.
1, 0, 1, 1 -------- 1 ----------( 1 & 3) Or (1 & 4) Or (3 & 4) Any Two Or More.
1, 1, 0, 0 -------- 1 ----------( 1 & 2) Any Two.
1, 1, 0, 1 -------- 1 ----------( 1 & 2) Or (1 & 4) Or (2 & 4) Any Two Or More.
1, 1, 1, 0 -------- 1 ----------( 1 & 2) Or (1 & 3) Or (2 & 3) Any Two Or More.
1, 1, 1, 1 -------- 1 ----------( 1 & 2) Or (1 & 3) Or (1 & 4) Or (2 & 3) Or (2 & 4) or (3 & 4) Any Two Or More.

So you need 6 2-input AND gates and an OR gate with 6 Inputs.

Greetings
at your service
