    Hello everyone, I need to you to check if i did this right, i did this k-map 3 different times and everytime i do it, i get a different answer. okay here is the picture:

    no, you have an error. you have two c' entries on thr map but only one in the original truth table.

    011
    101

    You could simplify using boolean theorems to check your answer.

    z= A'BC+AB'C+ABC'+ABC

    The last term ABC, has at least two variables common in the other terms.

    Z = A'BC+ABC+AB'C+ABC+ABC'+ABC
    Z = BC(A'+A) + AC(B'+B) + AB(C'+C)
    Z = BC + AC + AB

    You have BC + AC' + AB


    The mistake that you made in the K-map is that you have AB'C' instead of AB'C.
