Expression:

[tex]Y=\bar{X}_1\bar{X}_0+\bar{X}_1X_0+X_1\bar{X}_0[/tex]

Minimized expression:

[tex]Y=\bar{X}_1+\bar{X}_0[/tex]

My first attempt was to minimize it algebraically. I factored [tex]\bar{X}_1[/tex] from the first two terms, then the [tex]\bar{X}_0+X_0[/tex] reduce to 1. So I end up with [tex]\bar{X}_1+X_1\bar{X}_0[/tex].

My question then is, how does the second term (last term from the original expression) reduce to [tex]\bar{X}_0[/tex] to end up with the known correct expression?
