Boolean Algebra Rules?

  1. May 28, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Ok so I'm having trouble simplifying a part of a boolean equation. It needs to be in the form Yt(.....)


    2. Relevant equations
    note X' means Not X

    The part to be simplified is.. Y(NX'Z+NX'+NZ')

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Using the rules of simplification, particularly A+A=A, A+A'=1, AxA=1
    Ive come down to this but im still unsure if im on the right track..

    Y(NX'Z+NX'+NZ') .... so N + N + N = N, X' + X' = X', Z + Z' = 1
    Y(NX'(1))
    Y(NX')

    Could someone confirm this, or tell me im completely wrong :uhh:

    Thankyou!

    Skip the common term N, you could draw up a truth table for the Z and X parts and see whether your answer checks out.

    What does X' Z + X' simplify to?
