    a multiplexer/data selector question

    Hye guys I'm supposed to design a multiplexor that takes "4 8-bit buses and a 2-bit selector as inputs, and has a single 8-bit bus as output ".

    Does this basically mean a 4-to-1 MUX each input being 8 bits wide? if so how would I specify the 8-bit "width" of each input?

    thanks,

    axon

    P.S.
    I'm using TKGate if anyone is interested

    If my previous statement about that the description asks for a 4-to-1 MUX then I figured out how to set the bit width of a wire. TKGate has a nice tool to do that which i overlooked. If anyone cares to see the schematic, I've attached it below.

    If anyone thinks I am wrong in the above deduction please let me know.

    EDIT::
    here is the image of the schematic:
