## BOOLEAN ALGEBRA AND LOGIC SIMPLIFICATION

Boolean algebra is a branch of mathematics that deals with logical operations and binary variables. Logic simplification is the process of reducing the complexity of a logical expression or circuit by using laws of Boolean algebra and various si

**What is Boolean algebra?**Answer: Boolean algebra is a branch of mathematics that deals with logical operations and binary variables.**What are the basic logical operations in Boolean algebra?**Answer: The basic logical operations in Boolean algebra are AND, OR, and NOT.**What is logic simplification?**Answer: Logic simplification is the process of reducing the complexity of a logical expression or circuit by using laws of Boolean algebra and various simplification techniques.**What is DeMorgan's law?**Answer: DeMorgan's law states that the complement of the product of two variables is equal to the sum of the complements of the variables.**What is a truth table?**Answer: A truth table is a table that shows the output of a logical expression for all possible input combinations.**What is a Karnaugh map?**Answer: A Karnaugh map is a graphical tool used to simplify Boolean expressions by grouping adjacent cells in a truth table that have the same output value.**What is a prime implicant?**Answer: A prime implicant is a product term that cannot be simplified further by combining it with other product terms.**What is the Quine-McCluskey algorithm?**Answer: The Quine-McCluskey algorithm is a method used for logic simplification that involves finding all prime implicants of a Boolean expression and then selecting the minimum set of prime implicants that covers all the minterms.**What is the difference between a NAND and an AND gate?**Answer: The output of a NAND gate is the complement of the output of an AND gate.**What is the output of a NOT gate when the input is 1?**Answer: The output of a NOT gate when the input is 1 is 0.
