If you know your current output and your L, R, and E values, do you know what
your next output should be? If so, you can figure out what your next state
should be. The you can synthesize the state variables based on A and B or on
L, R, and E. If you aren't sure what a particular next state variable should
be a function of, just make it a function of all inputs and the current state
variables. The K-Map will reduce it to the appropriate set of inputs. Does
that answer the question?
