1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data This is a 3 state machine with one input variable. The input given for x produces the output sequence for z. The machine starts in state A. I am asked to derive the state table. x=010001010010010011010 A z=001000000001001000001 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I know that you first try to find the distinguishing sequence. I tried 2 and 3 number sequences and failed. I got a 4 number distinguishing sequence (0100), but it doesn't really help. A(0010)= 0000 B(0010)= 0001 C(0010)= 1001 => C(0) =1 x=010001010010010011010 A A B C z=001000000001001000001 I appreciate the help guys!
