    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    Simplify these equations and functions

    1. xyz’ + x’ (x + z) + x’yz + x’y’z’
    2. xy (z + z’) + x’y’z
    3. wxyz + w’xy’z + wx (y’ + z) + w’x’z
    4. F(A, B, C, D, E) = ∑(0, 1, 5, 6, 13, 15, 20, 21, 22)
    5. F(w, x, y, z) = ∑(0, 1, 2, 3, 11, 13, 15)


    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    5. F( W, X, Y, Z ) = X'Y' + X'Z + XY + YZ'

    (') means prime.
    We must be able to simplify these statements so that we can create a circuit diagram out of it using circuit maker. Xor, AND, and NAND Gates
