    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 ;)
