**Boolean Algebra**invention started by George Boole. He invented a

**rule**that there is a clear connection between mathematics and logic.

Previously I have discussed De Morgan's Law.

## Boolean Algebra rules

**Boolean Algebra rules**have been made by depending on true false. But when the use of binary number system(0,1) started on computers from that time this true-false is represented by binary numbers 1 and 0.

Only for addition and multiplication binary digit 0 and 1 are used in Boolean Algebra. No geometrical, trigonometric rule is not usable in

**Boolean algebra**. Here no negative or fractional number is not usable.

For different simplifications, we need to apply many

**rules**. By applying these rules we can make the equations simple.

#### Variable

The value of the Boolean variable is changeable. It changes for time. If A is a Boolean variable then it can take 0 or 1 any of these.

#### Constant

In Boolean algebra, 2 digits (0 and 1) are used. Value of 0 and 1 never changes. That is why 0 and 1 are called Boolean constant is a Boolean algebra.

#### Substitute

Two value of boolean algebra is 0 and 1. These two are the substitute for each other. It is represented by the ' ¯ ' sign. Sometimes ' / ' sign is also used.

#### Substitution rules

- ͞0 =1
- 1 = 0
- Ā̄ = A
- If A = 0 then Ä€ = 1
- If A = 1 then Ä€=0

### Basic operations

3 types of Boolean basic operations:

**Logical addition**

It is also called OR operation. "+" sign is usually used in this case. Example: A OR B is represented as A+B.

**Logical multiplication**

It is also called AND operation. " • " sign is usually used in this case. Example: A AND B is represented as A•B.

**Logical inversion**

It is complementation or NOT operation. " / " or " ËŠ " sign is used in this case. Example: NOT (A) is represented as AËŠ.

### Logical operator

In

**Boolean algebra**for completing 3 Boolean operations, we use some signs. Those are called logical operators.AND operator: The logical multiplication process is done by this.

OR operator: The logical addition process is done by this.

NOT operator: Logical inversion is done by this.

### Postulates

All the operations in Boolean algebra are completed by addition and multiplication. In the addition and multiplication process, Boolean algebra follows some rules.

Addition rules

- 0+0 = 0
- 0+1 = 1
- 1+0 = 1
- 1+1 = 1

Multiplication rules

- 0.0 = 0
- 0.1 = 0
- 1.0 = 0
- 1.1 = 1
