Is it 2^13 ?
answer is 2^5. Can you please explain har are you approaching?
answer is 2^5

Ohkay. I get it now.

The func f2 should be such that f1.f2 shoud be 1. So f2 cannot have any no from f1 except (4,7,15) . The remaining nos then are (5,6,12,13,14). Thus 2^5

we have F = f1 .f2

here F = (4,7,15) it means these are the minterms which should be common in both F1 and F2.

so the function F2 can have the minterms which are not in F1 except from (4,7,15)

F2 can have (5,6,12,13,14)  and must have (4,7,15). hence the total number of possiblities in F2 is 2^5.
