  equal. The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language: Fourth Edition. 2000.
Objections to the more equal construction rest on the assumption that the mathematical notion of equality is appropriate to the description of a world where the equality of two quantities is often an approximate matter, and where statements of equality are always relative to an implicit standard of tolerance.
When someone says The two boards are of equal length, we assume that the equality is reckoned to some order of approximation determined by the context; if we did not, we would be required always to use nearly equal when speaking of the dimensions of physical objects.
What is more, we often speak of the equality of things that cannot be measured quantitatively, as when we say The college draft was introduced in an effort to make the teams in the National Football League as equal as possible, or The candidates for the job should all be given equal consideration.

 Rights of the People: Individual Freedom and the Bill of Rights
Efforts by women to gain equality by going to court had failed, and most men probably shared the view expressed by Justice Bradley in 1873; "The paramount destiny and mission of a woman are to fulfill the noble and benign offices of wife and mother.
If the sole implication of the Equal Protection Clause was merely to ensure that the government enforced all laws fairly, and passed no discriminatory measures, then while it would still be important, the clause would not have had the impact that it did in the last half-century.
Equal protection has also come to mean that all persons must be free to participate in the community's public life, depending on their inclination and financial means, even those aspects that might normally be seen as belonging to private persons.

 Equal temperament - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A precise equal temperament was not attainable until Johann Heinrich Scheibler developed a tuning fork tonometer in 1834 to accurately measure pitches.
The use of this device was not widespread, and it was not until the early 20th century that a practical aural method of tuning the piano to equal temperament with precision was developed and disseminated.
It is in the environment of equal temperament that the new styles of symmetrical tonality and polytonality, atonal music such as that written with the twelve tone technique or serialism, and jazz (at least its piano component) developed and flourished.

 § 115. equal. 3. Word Choice. The American Heritage Book of English Usage. 1996
Some people say that equal is an absolute term, that is, that two quantities either are or are not equal and that equal therefore cannot be qualified in degree.
According to this account, equal has its “precise” or “literal” meaning in the use of the equal sign in an arithmetic expression such as 5 + 2 = 7, and more ordinary uses of equal, though they may be permissible, represent “loose” or “imprecise” extensions of the mathematical sense.
In fact the mathematical concept of equality is a poor model for using the word equal to describe relations between things in the world.

 Equal protection - Wex
The Equal Protection Clause of the 14th amendment of the U.S. Constitution prohibits states from denying any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
The equal protection clause is not intended to provide "equality" among individuals or classes but only "equal application" of the laws.
By denying states the ability to discriminate, the equal protection clause of the Constitution is crucial to the protection of civil rights.

 Equality (mathematics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This defines a binary relation, equality, denoted by the sign of equality "=" in such a way that the statement "x = y" means that x and y are equal.
Given a set A, the restriction of equality to the set A is a binary relation, which is at once reflexive, symmetric, antisymmetric, and transitive.
A stronger sense of equality is obtained if some form of Leibniz's law is added as an axiom; the assertion of this axiom rules out "bare particulars"—things that have all and only the same properties but are not equal to each other—which are possible in some logical formalisms.
