# Use euclids axioms to prove the following:Given x+y=10 and x=z . Show that z+y=10.

the given equation is:

x + y =10 ............(1) and x = z ........(2)

subtracting x from the both sides of the eq (1)

[if equals are subtracted from equals , the remainders are equal]

[now add z on the both sides of the equation]

[if equals are added to equals , the wholes are equal]

hope this helps you.

cheers!!
