Questions tagged [truth-table]

A truth table is a mathematical table used in logic—specifically in connection with Boolean algebra, boolean functions, and propositional calculus—which sets out the functional values of logical expressions on each of their functional arguments, that is, for each combination of values taken by their logical variables.

If two Boolean functions \$f_1\$ and \$f_2\$ have same truth table, does that means they have exactly same characteristic? can one f1 numerate to f2?

if \$f_1(x,y,z)=\neg xz+x\neg y+\neg xy\neg z+xy\neg z\$ determine if \$f_1\$ is symmetric and whether it is unate. What I thought is: \$f_1\$=¬xz+x¬y+y¬z, the truth table of \$f_1\$ has the same ...
