Expert Answer:

Dear Student,
 
Euclisd's axioms are following:
(2) If equals are added to equals, the wholes are equal.
If two numbers x and y are equal. Then on adding a constant c to both of these would not hamper the equality.
i.e. x + c = y + c
(3) If equals are subtracted from equals, the remainders are equal.
If two numbers x and y are equal. Then on subtracting a constant c from both of these would not hamper the equality.
i.e. x - c = y - c
 
Thanks.
