EET-140Boolean LogicName: [Type here]Boolean LogicDigital binary datum are called bits.A bit is a (single) datum that can take one of two values, 1 or 0.Bits can be used to represent logic states such as true (1) or false (0).Boolean logic, or Boolean algebra,is a complete system for representing decision making as logical mathematical operations.It wasdeveloped by an English mathematician, George Boole, in the 1840’s.Boolean logic has manyapplications in electronics, computer hardware and software.It is the basis for modern digitalelectronics.Some examples of Boolean logic:1 AND 1 is 11 AND 0 is 01 OR 0 is 10 OR 0 is 0NOT 1 is 0NOT 0 is 1George Boole developed an algebra around decision making, rather than pure mathematical function.Atypical algebra is built around a set of numbers and (at least) two operations (functions) involvingnumbers.Since decision logic consists of two states, true/false, on/off, red/green, etc., Boolean algebra
