I'm confused about an aspect of Karnaugh maps.
When we have a map like indicated in the figure attached, how do we group appropriately?
I've always tried to group every 0 in the largest group possible, regardless whether or not the other 0's in the same group have been grouped already.
This will create redundant terms, correct?
How do I identify this and eliminate them?
The expression I come up with, with my groupings is,
\((x_{2} + x_{0})(x_{2} + x_{1})( \bar{x_{3}} + x_{0})(x_{1} + \bar{x_{0}} + x_{3})\)
Thanks again!
