4-53.

Rianna thinks that if a = b and if c = d, then a + c = b + d. Is she correct? Homework Help ✎

If you add the same amount to both sides of the equals sign, then the equation remains true.

Adding c to one side is the same as adding d to the other because c and d are equal.

Therefore, the equation (a + c = b + d) is correct.
