Hi Kwfine,

The usual practice is to end a letter with ‘Yours sincerely’ if you have sầu started with the person’s name as in: Dear Mr/Mrs/Ms Jones’. If you don’t know the name of the person lớn whom you are writing và address them as: Dear Sir/Madam’, you would end the letter: ‘Yours faithfully’.

My more “dictionary” explanation would be that they are obviously all be nouns. The first distinction I would make between the 3 words is that material should not be thought to lớn be similar lớn equipment & tools, even depending on context usually only the latter two are used interchangeably (unless you have sầu seen or heard of an example).

So starting with material; normal everyday usage it generally provides the meaning/impression of something that is raw or parts of a sản phẩm that is yet-to-be-made — and normally referring to lớn things that are fabric/natural in nature (clothing, furniture or house decorations etc.). Having said this, we also commonly refer “material” as an abstract resources; the likes of “schooling materials (textbooks, workbooks or sometimes evensome of the facilities that the school provides)”

E.g. you normally ask a salesperson regarding the origin of a furniture piece và he/she would answer you in terms of “material” — the type of animal skin/wood that is used lớn make that product. Never vày you ask “what such và such equipment/tool is this made of ?”

As far as equipment and tools is concerned, if we consider sports “equipment” and “tools” are the necessary “things” that allow us khổng lồ persize a specific task. For instance, to lớn play soccer we need goals và a ball or other activities then you would need various other objects: paddles, swimsuit/goggles, appropriate clothing just to name a few. We also usually use these references when we want describe objects that are more “industrialised” (not sure if this is the right word to lớn use but…) in nature. For example, factory machineries, computers, printers, chairs, tables (personally I think my explanation is rather ambiguous but I guess this is somewhat how languages are anyway).

In my opinion, as a general assumption, it should be relatively safe lớn relate the usage of material as “products” of non-mechanical things & equipment/tools to lớn mechanical objects.
