Can anyone help me with Boolean Algebra

((A+B)B')+AB

Does anyone understand this

or this

Find all ordered pairs (A, B) that satisfy the following expression: (A + B)' ((AB)')

I've always hated boolean algebra, but only because I can never remeber whether plus or multiplication is and or or.

((A+B)B')+AB

((A v B) ^ ~B) v (A ^ B)

The easiest way to do this is to make a truth table:

A | B

------

0 | 0

0 | 1

1 | 0

1 | 1

Then plug each of the values in. For the first ordered pair (0,0), it would be:

((0+0)0') + 0*0 which is (0*1) + (0) which is 0.

Try the others, post your results here and we can check them for you.

"In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..."

Can anyone help me to find some text about any matter (or topic) of mathematics. Because I have to write an essay and it should be about 2 pages long so that I could use it.

ikirs,

Your seeking help on any topic in mathematics leaves a lot of options open. You haven't specified at what level of school/university you are.

However, I shall give some links on some interesting topics in mathematics, you may choose from these.

It is no good to try to stop knowledge from going forward. Ignorance is never better than knowledge - Enrico Fermi.

Nothing is better than reading and gaining more and more knowledge - Stephen William Hawking.
