## INFORMATION

The Karnaugh map is an important tool used to simplify functions in Boolean algebra. The 1s, 0s, and don't care conditions from the truth table are transferred to the Karnaugh map in a specific order, and rectangular groups consisting of sides with lengths of 1, 2, or 4 and composed of 0s are identified. The complements of terms corresponding to each group are multiplied together, resulting in a simplified expression in sum-of-products form.

## INPUT FORMAT

Enter the maxterm numbers to the first input box and don't care conditions to the second one. The maxterms and don't care conditions should be different numbers. These numbers should be separated by commas or spaces.
