##### Find the Principal conjunctive normal form for the given expression.

Principal conjunctive normal form of ( p^ q)or( !p^ q) is

a) sum of products

b) product of sums

c)sum of max terms

d) product of max terms

Principal conjunctive normal form of ( p^ q)or( !p^ q) is

a) sum of products

b) product of sums

c)sum of max terms

d) product of max terms

But answer given was product of max terms

^ : .

! : '

or : +

pq+p'q=(p+p').q=q which can be written in (p+q).(p'+q) this is equivalent to "product of max term" or we can say "Principal conjunctive normal form"

I also got q but I was confused what to mark ... product of sum or product of max terms

its product of max term .

Ans is Dhttps://math.stackexchange.com/questions/636119/find-dnf-and-cnf-of-an-e...

check this link to further clarification of definition

Principal conjunctive normal form is product of sum

and given logic ( p^ q) or( !p^ q) can be wriiten as (p+p').(q+q) which is in Principal conjunctive normal form
