Saw a church sign today that said “One plus God equals a majority”. Which of course makes no sense. Mathematically, that is.
E.g. means “for example”; i.e. means “that is.”
E.g. is short for exempli gratia, which literally means “by grace of example.” I.e. is more straightforward: id est means “that is.” The confusion stems from the fact that both abbreviations seek to clarify or focus a broad proposition, but e.g. is followed by a specific example, whereas i.e. is followed by a restatement.
