e•qual•ly(ˈi kwə li)
You use equally in front of an adjective to say that a person or thing has as much of a quality as someone or something else that has been mentioned.
Don't use 'equally' in front of as when making a comparison. Don't say, for example, 'He is equally as tall as his brother'. You say 'He is just as tall as his brother'.
