1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Ok, so I have a digital electronics exam tomorrow, pretty confident with everything except when I should use minterms and maxterms. As I understand... using tabular method to find a minimum SOP expression I would use the minterms and if I need to find a minimum POS expression I would use the maxterms. 2. Relevant equations For example: Use tabular method to find a minimum POS expression for the following, F(A,B,C,D)=M(0,2,3,8,12,13,15) I would simply use 0000,0010,0011.....etc However if I was asked to find the SOP I would have to convert to minterms so.. F(A,B,C,D)=m(1,4,5,6,7,9,10,11,14) then I would use 0001,0100,0101....etc 3. The attempt at a solution I am fine with the tabular method itself just confused with the above. Thankyou very much for anyone that can offer any insight.
