    hi to all,

    sorry blazedaces for the bad english, this is the edited version. hopefully it's better. haha.
    i have a question about logic gates and Karnaugh Map.

    qn: F = AB' + ABCD + ACD' + ABC' + AB + ABC + A'BD'
    i am supposed to find the minimised Sum-of-Product equation of the above using Karnaugh Map.

    however, after coming out with the Map, i dunnoe if it's correct to use 2 or 3 loops to find the equivalent equation.

    if i were to consider 2 loops, my answer will be:
    F = BD' + AD

    if i were to consider 3 loops, my answer will be:
    F = BD' + AD + AD'

    can someone help me out?

    thank you.

    I have absolutely no idea what you're referring to ... maybe you could re-explain your question please?

    Unless someone else knows what is being talked about...
