    Hello. Q on minterms and maxterms

    I have a test coming up so I'm trying to understand minterms and maxterms

    heres a random problem from the book. its an example of the type of problem i don't know how to approach.


    For function F(x, y, z) = (x+y)(y'+z)

    Express in:

    sum of minterms form
    product of maxterms form


    Anyway I could get a step by step on this? Thank you!

    try the following page
    sum of products and product of sums

    it contains the change to product of sums and uses that form to change over to sum of products.

    otherwise you could use distributive law in your given expression and introduce .1 in each term and then replace the 1 in the form (a+a') for the missing term to get sum of products
