# Simplify the following functional expression

Simplify the following functional expression using Boolean algebra and its identities. List the identity used at each step.

F(x, y, z) = x'y + xyz' + xyz

I think I know how to do this one but I want to make sure. I have a test coming up and this is a review question. My book is horrible when it comes to providing good examples with answers so that I know I am working it correctly.

The other question I was not to sure about is:

Use a truth table to prove the following either True for False.

yz + xyz' + x' y' z = xy + x' z

If I can get the answers to a few of the questions I can figure out the rest of them based on these examples.
