The And Gate
The AND operation between two variables say, x and y is written as x.y
This is the symbol of the AND gate.
Truth Table for the AND gate
The interpretation of the truth table is as follows:
- If both inputs (x.y) are ‘0’, the output will be 0.
- If x = 0 and y = 1, the output will be 0
- If x = 1 and y = 0, the output will be 0
- But if both x and y are 1, then the output will be 1.
With the above explanation of the AND truth table, it could be seen as a normal multiplication. For example:
Let x = 110
Let y = 011
The output X.Y = 010
