## Majority vote rubric

1. 20 POINTS In your engineering notebook:
1. Create the truth table for the problem
2. Write the minterm SOP expression
3. Show the steps to simplify the expression
4. Draw the logic circuit
2. 15 POINTS In Multisim (INDIVIDUAL work!)
1. SHOW how all the possible switch settings work for your simplification of the majority vote problem
3. 10 POINTS On the breadboard (alone or in pairs)
1. Wire one of these simplified expressions:
1. P(V+S+T)+VST
2. PV+PX+PT+VST
4. GO FOR THE "A". 5 POINTS (print this out) What would happen if there were 5 members, with an Advisor, on the board with no need for a tie breaker and they wanted a secret vote system that lit up when a majority voted for an issue? Complete the truth table, write the SOP equation, show some steps to create the best simplified equation you can think of, draw the logic circuit.
