    Did you look around? The eBook has some information on how to make a Karnaugh map - see here and following.

    Essentially, you take the minterms (or maxterms if you know what you're doing) and put them into a corresponding cell in a table whose rows and columns correspond to the input pattern. The cell then contains the value of the function at the intersection of row and column.

    So, of I have f(a,b,c,d) = abcd, and my table is set up with the rows being ab and the columns being cd, then I'll have a single 1 in the table at row 11 (or ab) and column 11 (or cd).

    Look in your text, your notes, or Google about Karnaugh map.

    Then pick one of your problems and make your best attempt to solve it and post your work here and then we can help point out where you are going astray.
