Once understood, such knowledgeshould provide the foundation from which the principles of mathematics can be presented. Byno means are the terms here all inclusive; they are representative of those found within thenuclear field.EqualsAn expression indicating values which are identical in mathematical value or logicaldenotation. It is given the symbol =.IsNotEqualtoAn expression indicating values which are not identical in mathematical value or logicaldenotation.
