I am not sure which one is better: A equals B; A equals to B; A was equal to B; Many equal 10; Many equal to 10; Many were equal to 10.

So, if you aren't talking just about math, but something like this:


"Company X bills a standard administrative charge equal to six percent for each project."


You WOULD use a "to" here because "equal" is an adjective modifying "charge"?
