When possible, the added terms should be chosen so that they will combine with or eliminate other terms. WX + XY + X′Z′ + WY′Z′ (add WZ′ by consensus theorem) = WX + XY + X′Z′ + WY′Z′ + WZ′ (eliminate WY′Z′) = WX + XY + X′Z′ + WZ′ (eliminate WZ′) = WX + XY + X′Z′ (3-27) Example (3-28), p 69-70 Proving Validity of an Equation Often we will need to determine if an equation is valid for all combinations of values of the variables. Several methods can be used to determine if an equation is valid: 1. Construct a truth table...
