You can use for = : "gleich, ist gleich, ergibt, gibt, macht, ist" and sometimes "sind" and "ergeben"

Are gibt and ist interchangeable?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/biertopf

Yes, but only in this context meaning "=". Other possibilities are "ist gleich" and "macht".


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mizinamo

For me, also "gleich" (fünf minus vier gleich eins).

another possibility is "ergibt" (for me slightly better than "gibt")
