# How do you find a Boolean equation describing a required alarm output?

A process involves moving speed, load weight, and rate of loading in a conveyor system. The variables are provided as high (1) and low (0) levels for digital control. An alarm should be initiated whenever any of the following occur:

a. speed is low; both weight and load rater are high

b. speed is high; load rate is low

Find a Boolean equation describing the required alarm output. Let the variables be S for speed, W for weight and R for loading rate.
