Homework Help: Using xor gate as an or gate?

  1. Dec 14, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    i have the equation x(y+z)=f some how it becomes x(z xor y xor zy)

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    xy+xz
    xy(z+NOTz)+x(y+NOTy)z
    x(yz+(y XOR z))


    Thanks

    You are wanting to show that y+z = z ⨂ y ⨂ zy ?

    I suggest that you first draw up a truth table to demonstrate that it holds true, before trying to prove it algebraically.
