Homework Help: Basic Boolean Algebra Help

  1. Feb 17, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Show that F=wy'z+x'y'z+w'xy+wx'y+wxy = y'z+yw+yx

    2. Relevant equations

    Boolean Algebra..

    3. The attempt at a solution

    F=y'z(x+x') + yw(x+x') + w'xy
    => y'z+yw+w'xy
    => y'z + y(w+w'x)
    => y'z + y + yw <-----stuck here what do i do? Not sure if this step is right either...
