| Notes: |
|This is from my Barron's Japanese Vocabulary Book.|
It appears as though the function is similar to -i adjective, where desu is dropped. Or desu is not needed due to the operators plain verb form.
That or "ha" functions opposite of contrast in this case, and functions as "comparable" as the last example may indicate.

Do you need to add です to make it a polite speech? For example, is it expected of a person in a formal presentation to say 二足す三は五です?
