Now set ##a = xy##.

Note, however, that ##\overline{xy} \neq \overline{x} \overline{y}##.

Now set ##a = xy##.

Note, however, that ##\overline{xy} \neq \overline{x} \overline{y}##.

what if x=1 and y=0 the xy=0 and compliment(xy)=0 then 0+0 != 1

So you meant, is ##xy + \bar{x}\bar{y} = 1## ?

No.

Hi ZeroPivot!

So you meant, is ##xy + \bar{x}\bar{y} = 1## ?

No.

Because if it were, ##\overline{xy}## would equal ##\bar x \bar y##. In fact it equals ##\bar x + \bar y##.
