Let Sunil's weight be 'x kg' and Shyam's weight be 'y kg', where x=y.
Now on adding 5kg on both sides gives,
5x and 5y, where 5x=5y because Euclid's Second Axiom states that,
IF EQUALS ARE ADDED TO EQUALS, THE WHOLES ARE EQUAL.

THANK me if you think I'm correct.
how is that possible? :/
can you say if possible
Lets say'
If you subtract 5 from both sides, 5x - 5 and 5y - 5 , then you will get x and y where x = y because Euclid's axiom states that,
IF EQUALS ARE SUBTRACTED FROM EQUALS, THE REMAINDERS ARE EQUAL.
ok
sORRY THERE IS A MISTAKE IN MY FIRST ANSWER....
IF YOU ADD 5kg on both sides it is 5+x and 5+y, not 5x and 5y. SORRY...

It is given that both have same weight.
Let their weight be x and y also x=y
Now if 5 is added to both,then,it will be,5+x and 5+y and also 5+x=5+y
Since thier initial weight was same and a same weight was added to both then their present weight will also be equal.
IF EQUALS ARE ADDED TO EQUALS,WHOLE ARE EQUAL
