    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!

    For the sum of minterms just expand the brackets will do.

    xy'+xz+yy'+yz
    xy'+xz+yz ( Sum of minterms )

    (x+y+z)(x+y+z')(x+y'+z)(x'+y'+z) (product of maxterms) (Should be correct)
