    Logic Function Using 74LS151

    ok, so i used A C D as the inputs where A is the most significant bit. For B, i put it into a 2 input nand gate, which gives B' and connect that to Do, D2, D4, D6...for the rest, i grounded them. I guess it is becuase B is the one that controls the mux?? Can you tell me if I am on the rite track?
