Im not sure if this is the right place to post this but heres my question. I have to create a counter that outputs a 1 every 4th clock cycle. I cant make a truth table because it doesnt realy make sense. Im a newb to digital logic and suck at it. Any one have any help.
Thanks
Jason

Moved to homework forums. And yes, a truth table or state table would be a good start...
