# Give an example for the following axioms from your experience:

(a) If equals are added to equals, the wholes are equals.

(b) The whole is greater than the part.

Answer :

(a) let the number of apples in basket A = 10

And number of bananas in basket B = 10

Add 5 number of mangoes in each basket we get equal number of fruits in both of these baskets that is equal to 15.

(b) let we have a baskets of 10 apples.

If we remove 4 apples from the basket which were earlier part of that basket. The apples removed are less in number than the total apples earlier present.

Hence, we can say the whole is greater than the part.
