Boolean Algebra is used to analyze and simplify the digital (logic) circuits. It uses only the binary numbers i.e. 0 and 1. It is also called as Binary Algebra or logical Algebra. Boolean algebra was invented by George Boole in 1854.

Rule in boolean algebra

Following are the important rules used in boolean algebra.

  • Variable used can have only two values. Binary 1 for HIGH and Binary 0 for LOW.
  • Complement of a variable is represented by a overbar (-). Thus complement of variable B is represented as B Bar. Thus if B = 0 then B Bar = 1 and B = 1 then B Bar = 0.
  • ORing of the variables is represented by a plus (+) sign between them. For example ORing of A, B, C is represented as A + B + C.
  • Logical ANDing of the two or more variable is represented by writing a dot between them such as A.B.C. Sometime the dot may be omitted like ABC.
