liason with égal and égale?

I noticed that the recording of "deux plus deux égal quatre" has no liason after the second deux but "deux plus deux égale quatre" does. Is it just a coincidence or is there a difference because of égal/égale?  I find it difficult to know when to use liason before a vowel and when not to and can't find anything that really explains it.

Hi Melisa, 

Indeed the liaison is made in the second case but not the first.

You can say both but personally I wouldn't make the liaison!
