**Equation**

• An equation is a condition on a variable. A variable takes on different numerical values; its value is not fixed. Variables are denoted usually by letters of the alphabets, such as x, y, z, l, m, n, p, etc.

• An equation remains the same, when the expressions on the left and on the right are interchanged. This property is useful in solving equations.

**Solving an Equation**

**Systematic Method**

• The same quantity can be added to both sides of an equation without changing the equality.

• The same quantity can be subtracted from both sides of an equation without changing the equality.

• Both sides of an equation may be multiplied by the same non-zero number without changing the equality.

• Both sides of an equation may be divided by the same non-zero number without changing the equality.

**Transposition Method**

• We can transfer (transpose) a term from one side to the other by changing its plus (+) sign to minus (-) sign or from minus sign to plus sign. This does not effect the equality of the statement.

• Transposing a number is the same as adding or subtracting the number from both sides.

• Transposition of an expression can be carried out in the same way as the transposition of a term.
