So another topic in which I have failed to get a grasp of so here I am coming to a forum for help

Basically for the last 3 weeks or so we have been learning about logic tables and stuff. I kinda understand it when I read it, but putting them into a table, or making a formular for a table I just dont get it.

It says the assignment is

You are given a 4-variable propositional logic function in the form of a truth-table generated by MATLAB code. The assignment tasks are: to obtain the disjunctive normal form (using tutorial instructions given later in this document); to simplify the disjunctive normal form using algebraic identities to implement the full and simplified forms in MATLAB code and finally to verify that the simplified logic functions give the same truth-table as that

originally obtained from the supplied code.

But this makes absolutely no sense to me... and my lecturer is too busy to spend one to one time with me
