    Hello everyone,

    For a programming project I am dealing with Boolean algebra which I cannot figure out. It's about minimizing gate logic using Petricks method. For those of you who are not familiar with this, I have added a link at the bottom. The part that I can't figure out is just after the part where it says: = (K + LM) (N + LQ) (P + MQ). I cannot follow how the Bolean algebra ends up on this, given the formulas in the text. I hope that maybe someone among you is very adept at this and can explain it to me. Thanks in advance. Kind regards, Karel.

    Sorry, which line can't you get to?
    is it from
    = (K+LM)(N+LQ)(P+MQ)
    to
    = (KN+KLQ+LMN+LMQ)(P+MQ)
    .
    Or was it getting to = (K+LM)(N+LQ)(P+MQ)?
    .
    Do not follow your " given the formulas in the text".
    Do you think of (K+LM)(N+LQ) in terms of algebra or as [K or (L and M)] and [N or (L and Q)]?
    .
    They multiply the brackets out.
