Meaning of EqualMathematics deals with quantities and considers their relations. One important relation is equivalence. If two quantities are equal in value we say they have an equivalence relationship. Two numbers can be equal. Or one can be bigger than the other. Thus we use notations such as 12 = 8 + 4 ("=" means "is equal to") 9 > 5 (">" means "is greater than") 7  1 < 7 ("<" means "is less than") To better understand equivalence, let's perform an experiment.
