What Are The Steps in Solving an Equation?

- Remove the brackets, if any in the given equation. Apply the distributive property.
- Add the same number to both the sides.
- Subtract the same number from both the sides.
- Multiply the same number on both the sides.
- Divide by the same number on both sides.

**What are the 3 rules to solving an equation?**

A General Rule for Solving Equations

- Simplify each side of the equation by removing parentheses and combining like terms.
- Use addition or subtraction to isolate the variable term on one side of the equation.
- Use multiplication or division to solve for the variable.

### What is an example of solution in math?

A solution to an equation is a number that can be plugged in for the variable to make a true number statement. 3(2)+5=11 , which says 6+5=11 ; that’s true! So 2 is a solution.

**What is a solution in math?**

Scientific definitions for solution Mathematics A value or values which, when substituted for a variable in an equation, make the equation true. For example, the solutions to the equation x2 = 4 are 2 and -2.

## What is the solution answer?

A solution is a homogeneous mixture of one or more solutes dissolved in a solvent. Note that the solvent is the substance that is present in the greatest amount. Many different kinds of solutions exist. For example, a solute can be a gas, a liquid or a solid.

**How do you identify solutions to equations?**

– In the working problem, the two factors are ( x − 5) {\\displaystyle (x-5)} and ( x − 10) {\\displaystyle (x-10)} . – Set each of these equal to 0 to get the solutions x = 5 {\\displaystyle x=5} and x = 10 {\\displaystyle x=10} . – With another problem, you may not be able to factor and would then have to use the quadratic formula to find the solution.
