Page 67 - Algebraic operations are based upon definitions, and the following axioms : 1. If equal quantities be added to equal quantities, the sums will be equal. 2. If equal quantities be subtracted from equal quantities, the remainders will be equal. 3. If equal quantities be multiplied by equal quantities, the products will be equal. 4.
