## algebraic equation

Definition: Algebraic Equation is a condition where two expressions have equal values.

Examples:
4x + 2 = 8
15 = 5x
x/2 = 8
3x - 2 = 4

Points to note:

• 1. Out of two expressions, one expression must contain a variable.
• 2. Even if we interchange the expression, the value remains unchanged.

Write the following statements in the form of equation:

Question 1 - Five times of "x" is 15
Solution - This proceeds as :
Five times of "x" = 5x
The resultant equation we get;
5x = 15

Question 2 - Sum of 4 times "x" and 2 is 10
Solution - This proceeds as :
Four times of "x" = 4x.
Sum of 4x and 2 = 4x + 2
The resultant equation we get;
4x + 2 = 10

Question 3 - Subtract 2 from 4 times of "x" and we get 10
Solution - This proceeds as :
Four times of "x" = 4x.
Subtract 2 from 4x = 4x - 2
The resultant equation we get;
4x - 2 = 10

Question 4 - One third of "x" is 15
Solution - This proceeds as :
One third of "x" = 1/3x
The resultant equation we get;
1/3x = 15
