Help me solve this using K map
∑m(1,2,4,7,8,11,13,14)
Express answer in minterms.

how to solve k map
This is an odd function map.
Suppose that the F(A B C D)=∑m(1,2,4,7,8,11,13,14)
There is no simplificaiton appears but since it is an odd fucntion we can write
F = A XOR B XOR B XOR C XOR D

how to solve kmap
whenever you see this kind of pattern, i think you can assume that it is the xor function. 1 way to solve it is to get the function and simplify it manually, i think we cant get the answer straight away from the kmap.

Solve using Kmap:
Manual simplification is not a good way to simplfy the function, since the it depends on your ability to see the common terms and even depend on your luck or your mood :D. So we must use procedural ways to do jobs.
It also saves time
