Homework Help: Reduce the expression to xor and or xnor

  1. Nov 2, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Reduce the expression to one that just contains xor and/or xnor


    2. Relevant equations
    (A'B'C')+(A'BC)+(ABC')+(AB'C)


    3. The attempt at a solution
    C'(A'B'+AB)+C(A'B+AB')
    C'(A[itex]\ominus[/itex]B)+C(A[itex]\oplus[/itex]B)
    not really sure what to do next.Do the C' and C cancel each other out?

    That looks like C' exclusive-ORed with A[itex]\oplus[/itex]B
    but best to confirm your final answer with a truth table.
