Homework Help: Need help with simplifying boolean equation

  1. Oct 1, 2011 #1
    Hi guys I need some strategies in simplifying this boolean equation please.

    My problem is: ~A~C + ~ABC + ~BC

    My first idea was to factor out ~A from the first two terms so I get : ~A(~C + BC) + ~BC)

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Are you familiar with Karnaugh maps? They can help you simplify these sorts of expressions very quickly.

    Well I am a little familiar with it but not enough. My professor wants us to use the boolean laws to simplify these. Thats what I need help using. Ive been stumped on this one for too long
