Axiom ax-8 1482
 Description: Axiom of Equality. One of the equality and substitution axioms of predicate calculus with equality. This is similar to, but not quite, a transitive law for equality (proved later as equtr 1685). Axiom scheme C8' in [Megill] p. 448 (p. 16 of the preprint). Also appears as Axiom C7 of [Monk2] p. 105. Axioms ax-8 1482 through ax-16 1786 are the axioms having to do with equality, substitution, and logical properties of our binary predicate ∈ (which later in set theory will mean "is a member of"). Note that all axioms except ax-16 1786 and ax-17 1506 are still valid even when 𝑥, 𝑦, and 𝑧 are replaced with the same variable because they do not have any distinct variable (Metamath's \$d) restrictions. Distinct variable restrictions are required for ax-16 1786 and ax-17 1506 only. (Contributed by NM, 5-Aug-1993.)
