What is the difference between equitable and fair?

equitable means each person gets something; fair means that each person gets what they deserve

equitable means that everyone is happy; fair means that everyone is angry

equitaqble means that everyone gets an equal share; fair means that the most deserving person gets it all


  1. Ms. Sue

    Yes, A.

    The problem with this question is it's overflowing with biases. Who determines what a person deserves? Who determines who is most deserving? If each person gets something -- does that means that one person gets a 10% tax reduction and another person gets a 1% tax reduction?

    Again, Bri, your course is filled with bias and value opinions. Follow the advice I gave you before.
