# Karnaugh-Map (K-Map)

## Observations

Abstract the common parts.

Place minterms in a special arrangement so that simplifications can be easily performed.

## Steps

For each ‘1’ in the K-Map, draw the largest possible group (2, 4, 8)

Using (1), take all groups that cover unique ’1’s

For any remaining ’1’s (not covered by groups in (2)):

Choose the smallest collection of groups to cover all of them.

## Finding POS

Find SOP for F’

Negate (1) to get POS.
