1. Boolean Algebra can be thought of as a system of mathematics based on logic that has its own set of rules or laws which are used to define and reduce Boolean expressions
2. Read the following excerpt on Boolean Algebra and fill in the blanks.
3. The variables used in Boolean Algebra only have one of two possible values, a logic “0” and a logic “1”
4. Boolean algebra was introduced by George Boole in his first book The Mathematical Analysis of Logic (1847), and set forth more fully in his An Investigation of the Laws of Thought (1854)
5. A few basic rules to keep in mind are listed in the following plain text. Fill in the blanks.
6. In the following, fill in the blanks for 1, 2 and 3
7. A law of Boolean algebra is also referred to as an ____________
8. A Boolean expression is any expression that has a Boolean value. For example, the ________________________ are Boolean expressions.
9. The expression x < 5 will give the result _____ when the variable x contains a number less than 5
10. Boolean Algebra Laws are used to
11. Which of the following laws is NOT a valid boolean algebra law?
12. In this series we will be using the notation as provided on electronics-course.com/boolean-algebra. Use the site to plug in the expression and obtain the result for the following:
13. What could the following expression be simplified to? (use the suggested site if you are yet to study simplification and this is just an introduction)
14. The simpler the boolean expression, the less logic gates will be used
15. Give the relationship that represents the dual of the Boolean property A + 1 = 1? (Note: * = AND, + = OR and ' = NOT)
