Hi, I am beginner in mathematics , I have the following three relationships:

a=b

c=d

a-b=c-d

I need to calculate c under the assumption that a, b and d are known values.

I got c=a-b+d

and c=a/b*d

can I use any other formulas?!!

Hi;

c=a/b*d is not true.

Unless you mean

That is generally not true but given your conditions...
