# What does the logic statement “F = AB” mean? Bitwise A AND B?

On an ALU data sheet there are logic formulae showing the results that will be output for various inputs.

(Second from last row on page 3.)

I assume that A+B means bitwise A OR B, this would follow, as the plus in a circle is XOR.

Does AB mean bitwise A AND B?

• It would follow, because the arithmetic plus is indicated by PLUS. And since the multiplication is not among the parts capability (as indicated on the first page), AB would mean bitwise A AND B. – Eugene Sh. Jun 23 '16 at 15:48
• A lot of sources are already on the google search, no offense I don't think there is a question here. – MaMba Jun 23 '16 at 16:16
• Unless it is a regex expression your deduction is true. – user105652 Jun 23 '16 at 22:29

• unless you consider 0 FALSE and anything else TRUE Like most C-derived programming languages, for example :) – cat Jun 23 '16 at 18:25
You are right AB mean A AND B . It is faster to write AB than A dot B or A AND B
