## Homework Statement

Recall that the Boolean addition is defined by the rule

x XOR y = xy' OR x'y. Consider the Boolean function in four variables w, x, y, z

defined by the formula f = w XOR y XOR xz XOR wxz XOR wyz XOR xyz XOR wxyz.

A Karnaugh map method must be used to find all simple boolean expressions.

I assume it must first be put into a truth table and then go from there.

## Homework Equations

x XOR y = xy' OR x'y

## The Attempt at a Solution

I attempted to try something like A = w XOR y B = A XOR xz C = B XOR wxz D = C XOR wyz E = D XOR xyz and F = E XOR wxyz. Then using these values in a truth table although i really have no idea what I am doing. Is it possible for someone to just say on the right track or wrong? I have been struggling with this for a long time now I'm getting pretty desperate. Thank you.

Edit: I'm not being very clear here, I'm just trying to work out how to convert function into disunjunctive normal form so i can then go from there, but I'm unable to do that. thanks.
