Awesome thanks.. Mind checking this as well?

Minimize Sum of Products equation given the following K map.

My Answer: \(\displaystyle \bar{y} \bar{w} + wx + y\bar{z}w + yw\bar{x} \)

Shouldn't that be $\bar y \bar w+\mathbf{\bar{w}x} + y \bar z w+yw\bar x$

Yes, but $\bar{w}\bar{y}+xy\bar{z}+w\bar{x}y$ is shorter.
