Its good to remember-
1)Every logic gate follows Commutative law.
2)AND,OR,Ex-OR,EX-NOR follows Associative law also. NAND,NOR doesn`t follow Associative law.

commutative law: A operator B = B operator

associative law: A operator (B operator C) = (A operator B) operator C

EX-NOR is associative...
