Suppose I have a function defined as follows, such that it is expressed in POS form, with the product of the following max terms of 4 variables (A,B,C,D):
and I only have a 4 to 1 multiplexer, one inverter, and one 2-input gate of my choice.
What would be the approach going about solving a question like this? In addition, what would be the "correct" 2-input gate to use in this situation?
Crunch out all possible combinations of inputs then take all possible gates possible for those particular inputs:
However I feel that takes too long and a rather cumbersome approach to take.
