**Maxterms**. For a boolean function of variables , a sum term in which each of the variables appears once (in either its complemented or uncomplemented form) is called a

**maxterm**.

**Maxterms**are a dual of the

**minterm**idea (i.e., exhibiting a complementary symmetry in all respects).

## What is maxterm?

**maxterm**(standard sum term) A sum (OR) of n Boolean variables, uncomplemented or complemented but not repeated, in a Boolean function of n variables. With n variables, 2

^{n}different

**maxterms**are possible. The complement of any

**maxterm**is a minterm. See also standard product of sums. "

**maxterm**."

## What do you mean by universal gate?

A

**universal gate**is a**gate**which can implement any Boolean function without need to use any other**gate**type. The NAND and NOR**gates**are**universal gates**. In practice, this is advantageous since NAND and NOR**gates**are economical and easier to fabricate and are the basic**gates**used in all IC digital logic families.3

## What is maxterm and Minterm in digital electronics?

A

**minterm**l is a product (AND) of all variables in the function, in direct or complemented form. A**minterm**has the property that it is equal to 1 on exactly one row of the truth table. A**maxterm**is a sum (OR) of all the variables in the function, in direct or complemented form.4

## What is a Implicant?

**Implicant**. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. In Boolean logic, an

**implicant**is a "covering" (sum term or product term) of one or more minterms in a sum of products (or maxterms in product of sums) of a Boolean function.

## What do you mean by prime implicants?

**Prime implicant**of is an

**implicant**that is minimal - that is, if the removal of any literal from product term results in a non-

**implicant**for . Essential

**prime implicant**is an

**prime implicant**that cover an output of the function that no combination of other

**prime implicants**is able to cover.

## What is the meaning of canonical form?

In mathematics and computer science, a

**canonical**, normal, or standard**form**of a mathematical object is a standard way of presenting that object as a mathematical expression. In this context, a**canonical form**is a representation such that every object has a unique representation.7

## What is the sum of products?

The minterms and maxterms may be used to define the two standard forms for logic expressions, namely the

**sum of products**(SOP), or**sum**of minterms, and the**product**of sums (POS), or**product**of maxterms. Boolean functions expressed as a**sum of products**or a**product**of sums are said to be in canonical form.8

## What is the sum?

the aggregate of two or more numbers, magnitudes, quantities, or particulars as determined by or as if by the mathematical process of addition: The

**sum**of 6 and 8 is 14. a particular aggregate or total, especially with reference to money: The expenses came to an enormous**sum**.9

## What is the product of a sum?

In math, when we use the word "

**sum**," we**mean**add the numbers. When we use the word "**product**," we**mean**multiply the numbers. So the "**sum**of the**products**"**means**we want to add (**sum**) the results of numbers being multiplied (**products**). Let me give you an example.10

## What is the sum of eight?

Number | Repeating Cycle of Sum of Digits of Multiples |
---|---|

5 | {5,1,6,2,7,3,8,4,9} |

6 | {6,3,9,6,3,9,6,3,9} |

7 | {7,5,3,1,8,6,4,2,9} |

8 | {8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1,9} |

## What is the product of 4?

In mathematics, a

**product**is a number or a quantity obtained by multiplying two or more numbers together. For example:**4**× 7 = 28 Here, the number 28 is called the**product of 4**and 7. The**product**of 6 and**4**will be 24, because 6 ×**4**= 24.12

## What is the product of 3?

**Product**(mathematics) In mathematics, a

**product**is the result of multiplying, or an expression that identifies factors to be multiplied. Thus, for instance, 6 is the

**product**of 2 and

**3**(the result of multiplication), and is the

**product**of and (indicating that the two factors should be multiplied together).

## What is the math sum?

In mathematics, summation (capital Greek sigma symbol: ∑) is the addition of a sequence of numbers; the result is their

**sum**or total. If numbers are added sequentially from left to right, any intermediate result is a partial**sum**, prefix**sum**, or running total of the summation.14

## What operation is difference?

Subtracting one number from another number is to find the difference between them.

**Multiplication**means times (or repeated addition). A product is the result of the**multiplication**of two (or more) numbers. Division 'undoes'**multiplication**.15

## How many is some?

Actually, no. While many people would agree that "a few" means

**three**or more, the actual dictionary definition of "a few" is, "not many but more than one." So, "a few" cannot be one, but it can be as low as**two**.16

## Is a couple 2 or 3?

The short (and rather unhelpful) answer is that while technically, "a

**couple**" does in fact mean two, it is not always used that way in practice and if you ask several native speakers you're likely to get different responses. "A**couple**", "a few", "several" Words like this are used with various intent.17

## How much does some mean?

A couple

**means**two. A few**means**a small number. (“ I have fewer than you”/”they are few and far between”) Several, according to its dictionary definition**means**“more than two but not**many**”, so a few but not a couple. And**some**, according to the dictionary**means**“an unspecified amount or number”.
