# Question 3.1: Convert the following expression into the standard SOP form.......

Convert the following expression into the standard SOP form.

$F=A+\bar{B} C$
Step-by-Step
The 'Blue Check Mark' means that this solution was answered by an expert.

The domain of this SOP expression is made up of A, B, and C.

In the first term, A, the other two variables B and C are absent. So the first term is multiplied by $B+\bar{B}$ and $C+\bar{C}$as below:

$A=A(B+\bar{B})(C+\bar{C} ) = ABC+AB\bar{C}+A\bar{B}C+A\bar{B}\bar{C}$

In the second term, BC, the variable A is absent. So the second term is multiplied by $A+\bar{A}$ as below:

$\bar{B} C=\bar{B} C(A+\bar{A} )+A\bar{B} C+\bar{A} \bar{B} C$

The standard SOP form of the original expression is as follows:

$F=A+\bar{B} C=ABC+AB\bar{C} +A\bar{B} C+A\bar{B} \bar{C} +\bar{A} \bar{B} C=m_{1} +m_{4} +m_{5}+m_{6}+m_{7}=\sum{m(1,4,5,6,7)}$

where two same standard product terms $A\bar{B}C$ can be merged by using rule 7: A+A = A.
