1 = 1 | 0

0 = 0 | 0

| means OR.

now AND...

0 = 0 & X

X = 1 & X, where X can be 1 or 0 (boolean value)

now XOR...

(exclusive-OR)

1 = 1 ^ 0

1 = 0 ^ 1

0 = 1 ^ 1

0 = 0 ^ 0

basically the 1 is a toggle of the other value, toggle = flip from 0 to 1 or 1 to 0.

Given that Ab, Bb, Cb are boolean variables holding 0 or 1, we have the following:

The / sign is the negation or NOT symbol as / put in front of a variable.

(Ab & /Bb) | (Bb & /Ab) = A ^ B, where ^ means exclusive-or (XOR).

Also demorgans laws something like...

/(Ab & Bb) = /Ab + /Bb
