This paper proposes a simple learning algorithm that can realize any boolean function using the three-layer binary neural networks. The algorithm has flexible learning functions. 1) moving "core" for the inputs separations,2) "don't care" settings of the separated inputs. The "don't care" inputs do not affect the successive separations. Performing numerical simulations on some typical examples, we have verified that our algorithm can give less number of hidden layer neurons than those by conventional ones.
