    i was thinking: why not just use dummy variables, like k=10, i=9 and m=3, but is there something deeper?

    Nope, that is the correct course of action. That would be the only way to prove by example.

    If (k + m)u = ku + mu , you should be able to set variables k,m and u equal to any random numbers and both sides should come out equal.

    I doubt if it is any more complex than that.
