Unformatted text preview: Boolean algebra called the distributive law: A(B+C) = AB + AC That’s the beauty of Boolean algebra: It allows us to apply provable mathematical principles to help us design logical circuits. The following chart shows a few of the properties of Boolean algebra: A 1 1 1 1 B 1 1 1 1 C 1 1 1 1 B + C 1 1 1 1 1 1 A(B+C) 1 1 1 Property AND Commutative Associative Distributive Identity Complement DeMorgan's law –7 0 7– .–7)C 0 –.7C) –.7 8 C) 0 .–7) 8 .–C) –> 0 – –.–2) 0 ! .–7)2 0 –2 OR 72 OR – 8 7 0 7 8 – .– 8 7) 8 C 0 – 8 .7 8 C) – 8 .7C) 0 .– 8 7).– 8 C) – 8 ! 0 – – 8 .–2) 0 > .– 8 7)2 0 –272...
