((Jesus)) as how can there be a question with basic stuff - if this is your main discipline - consider learning something that you are interested in

- the conveyor method would be opening all parenthesis and regrouping the operands keeping in mind that
X(true+false) = X -- or simply -- true + false = true
X(true AND false) = false -- or simply -- true·false = false --
-- the *FALSE usually is expressed as next
-- F(var.-s) = op.-s + 0* = op.-s + false* = op.-s
-- e.g. it's* usually not expressed

another way is to tile your X together from 16 - state truth-table/carnaugh-map as in http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/worksheets/karnaugh-mapping/

Can someone please give me a hand simplifying this Boolean Algebra question? Thank you.

This appears to be homework, so you need to show your best attempt to tackle it (it doesn't have to be correct, but it gives us a starting point to help identify where your approach is going wrong).

You might try expanding it into SOP (sum of products) form to get started.
