  1. Feb 7, 2015 #1
    I need to find the total number of Prime Implicants in a Kmap

    Is the one in red also a prime implicant?

    Prime implicants are the biggest quadratic groups you can create from certain adjacent 1-cells. So, since you can form that quadratic group, and since it's the biggest possible (together with [4, 5, 7, 6]) -- yes.
