Hello, 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. + OR * AND

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!
