The answer to the above Karnaugh map is $F(ABCD) = B D + \bar B \bar D + \bar A \bar C \bar D + \bar A C D$ according to my book and the K-map solvers online.
But what I don't get is that I can further reduce the terms in this answer: $F(ABCD) = \bar B \bar D + \bar A CD + \bar A B \bar C$ also covers all the min terms in lesser groups.
The answer in my book just has a bigger group covering additional don't cares. Since they are optional shouldn't my answer be correct?
