# There's Conflicts in the Definitions of XNOR? [duplicate]

XNOR has two definitions:

$$\1^{st}:XNOR=NOT(XOR)\$$

$$\2^{nd}: XNOR(A,B)=\overline{A}\cdot\overline{B}+A\cdot B\$$

The problem is that these definitions are not equal in Odd inputs, the second definition acts as xor at odd inputs.

is the second really a definition or is it just the SOP of the first definition at 2 inputs?

• If you want to ask about odd numbers of inputs, you should make your definitions of the function for an odd number of inputs. – The Photon Dec 4 '18 at 21:23
• These are equal. The number of inputs here are not Odd. XOR with number of inputs greater than 2 has two conflicting definitions indeed. electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/93713/… – Eugene Sh. Dec 4 '18 at 21:23

XNOR is a negation of the Exclusuve OR on any number of inputs. Thus if you have n inputs, you perform
