Can you please help me simplify this expression? I'd like to see what happens step by step
y = u*v'*w'+u*v'*w+u*v*w
' denotes compliment.

What ideas have you had so far?
i'm getting stuck at this part:
y = u*((v'*w')+(v'*w)+(v*w))
what can I do next?
I have not tried to help here because it is almost impossible to read the question.
Is it to simplify Please learn to post in symbols: You can use LaTeX tags.
More standard notation would omit the *'s and use implied multiplication thus:
u((v' w') + (v' w) + (v w)). The first two terms inside the parentheses there have a term in common. You could factor that, I think. What does that give you?
sorry, yea that's correct.
thats where I was having problems with...
does it factor to this???
u((v' ((w' + w) + (v w))))
I think I sorta get it...
(w' + w) cancels each other
(v' + v w) expands to
(v' + v)(v'+w) ---> (v' + w)
therefore i'm left with
u(v' + w) as my answer...
Looks good to me!
