Why is bringing "(XY)&&(X nand Y)" to the front a mistake? (Edit: The forum software automatically put the end url markers at the wrong place. It was confused by all the parentheses.)

A tautology happens when all conditions are true no matter what. Using a truth table you will be able to figure this out.
