I came across following excerpt:
$(x'y'+xy)'z'+(x'y'+xy)z=x\oplus y\oplus z$
What I see is left hand side is XNOR of $x,y$ and on right, $z$ and I get XOR of of $x,y$ and $z$ !!! In other word,
Somehow I am surprised by the result, as I didnt came across this earlier, no text stated this explicitly and was unexpected. It was unexpected because, I knew some other equalities and inequalities stated below, so was never thought of existence of above equality.
$XNOR(x,y)=NOT(XOR(x,y))$ $NAND(NAND(x,y),z)\neq AND(AND(x,y),z)$ $NOR(NOR(x,y),z)\neq AND(OR(x,y),z)$
Q1. Am I interpreting it correct as XNORs of three variables equals XOR of same three variables?
Q2. If yes, can someone shed more light about why such relationship is not true for other gates? Is just that their definition does not permit such relationship? Or Is it beacause ExOR is not basic gate, while AND and OR are?
PS: Sorry for naive, possibly stupid question.

$=x\oplus y\oplus z$
