EASY

Given x = 13, y = 1, which of these is an equivalent expression?
 x \(+\) 13 = y \(+\) 1
 x \(\) 1 = y \(\) 13
 x \(\div\) 1 = y \(\div\) 13
 x \(\times\) 1 = y \(\times\) 13
 x \(\) 1 = y \(+\) 13

If a = 1, b = 2, c = 3, d = 4, ..., z = 26, which of the following is true?
 z  y  x  ...  c  b  a = 0
 z  y + x  w + ...  c + b  a = 0
