Best Answer

In mathematics, identity is a transformation that leaves an object unchanged. In addition and subtraction, the identity element is zero. Adding or subtracting zero to or from a number will leave the original number. In multiplication and division, the identity element is one. Multiplying or dividing a number by one will leave the original number.
