a+b+c
a+b*c
a*b*c
a*b+c
a'b'c
a'b+c
a+b'c
a*b'c
a'b*c
Is there something straight forward thats wrong about this or do I need to go and spend an evening learning these before moving on?!

No need to go through AND/OR implementation in this case. All you need is to list the all possible target functions (by values) on these three points exhaustively. That would be the
possible binary combinations of of 3 bits.
