# Worksheet: NAND Gates

In this worksheet, we will practice determining the input and output of NAND gates in logic circuits and completing truth tables for NAND gates.

Q1:

The diagram shows two NAND gates, where the output of the first NAND gate is one of the inputs to the second. If input A is 1, input B is 0, and input C is 1, what is the output?

Q2:

The diagram shows a NAND gate where a single signal from the circuit is used for both inputs of the NAND gate. The truth table shows the different possible inputs of this arrangement.

Input Output 0 1 𝑝 𝑞
