## Ncert Solution for Class 8 Maths Chapter 2 Linear Equations In One Variable Exercise 2.1 Tips:

Introduction

In the earlier classes, you have come across several algebraic expressions and equations.

Some examples of expressions we have so far worked with are:

5x, 2x – 3, 3x + y, 2xy + 5, xyz + x + y + z, x^2+1, y + y^2

You would remember that equations use the equality (=) sign; it is missing in expressions.

Of these given expressions, many have more than one variable. For example, 2xy + 5

has two variables. We however, restrict to expressions with only one variable when we

form equations. Moreover, the expressions we use to form equations are linear. This means

that the highest power of the variable appearing in the expression is 1.

These are linear expressions:

Here we will deal with equations with linear expressions in one variable only. Such

equations are known as linear equations in one variable. The simple equations which

you studied in the earlier classes were all of this type.

Let us briefly revise what we know:

(a) An algebraic equation is an equality

involving variables. It has an equality sign.

The expression on the left of the equality sign

is the Left Hand Side (LHS). The expression

on the right of the equality sign is the Right

Hand Side (RHS).

(b) In an equation the values of

the expressions on the LHS

and RHS are equal. This

happens to be true only for

certain values of the variable.

These values are the

solutions of the equation.

(c) How to find the solution of an equation?

We assume that the two sides of the equation are balanced.

We perform the same mathematical operations on both

sides of the equation, so that the balance is not disturbed.

A few such steps give the solution.
