Image One shows two pictures of three people looking over a fence at a baseball match. In the first picture, labelled ‘Equality’ they are standing on boxes that are the same size. The tallest person has a clear view. The middle person can see over the fence, but the smallest person cannot. In the second image, labelled ‘Equity’ the taller person’s box has been moved to the smaller person, who can now see over the fence.
