Last Updated: 11th April, 2020

**equation**that has justone variable, such as x, then "

**solving**the

**equation**"

**means**finding the set of all values that can be substitutedfor the one variable to produce a valid

**equation**. Thus, to

**solve**.

Also question is, what does it mean to find the solution of an equation?

In mathematics, to solve an **equation** is to**find** its solutions, which are the values (numbers,functions, sets, etc.) that fulfill the condition stated by the**equation**, consisting generally of two expressions related byan equality sign. When seeking a **solution**, one or more freevariables are designated as unknowns.

Also Know, why do we solve equations? An **equation** is the mathematical representation ofthose two things which are equal, one on each side of an 'equals'sign. **Equations** are useful to **solve** our daily lifeproblem. All chips, which **we** use in these machines based onmathematical **equations** and algorithms. **We** use theinternet to look up the information.

Just so, what is your equation means?

In **an equation**, **the** quantities on bothsides of **the** equal sign are equal. That's **the**mathematical meaning of **equation**, but **equation** canalso be used in any number of situations, challenges, or efforts tosolve a problem. **An equation** is a statement of **the**equality of two quantities.

How do you check the solution of an equation?

**To check if a given value is a solution to anequation:**

- Evaluate the left-hand side expression at the given value toget a number.
- Evaluate the right-hand side expression at the given value toget a number.
- See if the numbers match.
