    If this is homework - what is XOR in boolean algebra ?

    In practical terms you can build any logic out of either NAND or NOR, most chips only implement one of these.

    define xor with a truth table.

    0 0 -0
    0 1-1
    1 0-1
    1 1-0

    xor = not(a).b + a.not(b)

    I also thought this is a homework problem. You can easily get this into and/or gates. If there are more than 2 inputs, you should be using k-maps. Once, you have in and/or gates, it is simple to convert it into nand (using Sum of products form) or nors (using products of sums or simply messing with bool algebra...)
