Definition: Equality, Inequality

An equation between two mathematical objects, quantities or variables $x$ and $y$ is written as $x=y$. It expresses the equality between these quantities (mathematical objects, or variables), i.e. an assertion that they are the same or have the same values. If \(x=y\), we say that \(x\) equals \(y\).

If \(x\) does not equal \(y\), we write \(x\neq y\) and call the relation \(x\neq y\) an inequality.
