Which equation is an identity? (1 point)
11 – (2v + 3) = –2v – 8
5w + 8 – w = 6w – 2(w – 4)
7m – 2 = 8m + 4 – m
8y + 9 = 8y – 3

An identity, I believe, yields the same result on both sides. Looks like #2 does that. I can also see TuringTest's point, and 0=0 is the same on both sides! :)

if it yields the same thing on both sides we have \(a=a\), in which case we can always subtract a from both sides and get 0=0 so yeah, same thing ;)
