Unfortunately, limitations of the browser used by Answers.com means that we cannot see most symbols. And so, there are no inequalities to be seen - equivalent or not. It is therefore impossible to give a proper answer to your question. Please resubmit your question spelling out the symbols as "plus", "minus", "equals" etc. And using ^ to indicate powers (eg x-squared = x^2).
