MINIMIZATION USING FOUR VARIABLE KARNAUGH MAP

Any adjacent 1, 2, 4 or 8 cells can be grouped to find a minimized logic value. The minimization equation is shown below. With reference to the table above the cells under the dotted box’s can be combined to come up with following reduced **equation**.

F = w’y’ + yw .. Final**Answer**.

F = w’y’ + yw .. Final
