    I didn't get the class explanation of it and none of the online explanations make sense to me. Does anyone know of any good resources for it?

    This is the sort of stuff I'm finding online, but it doesn't make any sense to me:
    Code:
    In propositional logic and boolean algebra this law conformed of a pair of transformational rules that are both solid and valid rules of inference, these rules allow for the expression of conjunctions and disjunctions purely in terms of eachother via negation.

    Nevermind, I found a good video for it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkPUBCaLiJE. It's for the AQA spec rather than OCR but only the notation is different. See:

    "not (A or B)" is the same as "(not A) and (not B)".

    Say if your a programmer writing the next gen Zoo simulation game you might have a rule that says:
    Dont pet oscar if hes hungry or angry.

    You could write the code like:
    if (oscarIsNotAngry and oscarisNotHungry)
    pet()

    or
    if( !(oscarIsAngry or oscarIsHungry))
    pet()

    Because demorgans law says they are the same.

    This resource helped me so much. They explain it about 3 different ways include a logic table proof and practice questions with explained answers.

    Nothing else explains it as well. Good luck!
