What is the principle used in ‘half adder’ ? Give the truth table for it?

Explanation

When we add two binary numbers, we start with the least significant column. This means that we have to add two bits with the possibility of a carry. The circuit used for this is called a half-adder. Fig (1) shows how to build a half-adder. The output of the exclusive OR gate is called the SUM, while the output of the AND gate is the CARRY. The AND …
