    Lightbulb Is equal to, equal

    Hi,

    There would be a different between these two types of verb.

    The latter conveys that something has the exact same value of the other thing?
    and the first one is used to compare two things.

    Am I right?

    Could anyone please explian it to me?

    Thnaks

    Thanks.
    It's impossible to answer your question without context or some examples. What do you mean by "these two types of verb". "Is equal to" is not a verb. "To equal" is a verb.

    Please give some example sentences using both the words/phrases in your title and then we will comment.

    Take more care with your spelling. You made two careless errors at the end of your post, with "explain" and "Thanks".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
