Boolean algebra or switching algebra is used to simplify Boolean equations and functions before they are used to design a logic gate. Boolean algebra is nothing butalogic to perform mathematical operations on binary numbers i.e., ‘0’ and ‘1’. Boolean algebra contains three basic operators viz. AND, OR and NOT. In this paper, we are trying to show these operations and some basic laws(i.e., commutative, associative and distributive) and the corresponding logic gate representations.
