**Solving Equations having the Variable onboth Sides**

An equation is the equality of the values of two expressions. In the equation 2x ā 3 = 7,

the two expressions are 2x ā 3 and 7. In most examples that we have come across so

far, the RHS is just a number. But this need not always be so; both sides could have

expressions with variables. For example, the equation 2x ā 3 = x + 2 has expressions

with a variable on both sides; the expression on the LHS is (2x ā 3) and the expression

on the RHS is (x + 2).

**WHAT HAVE WE DISCUSSED?**

- An algebraic equation is an equality involving variables. It says that the value of the expression on

one side of the equality sign is equal to the value of the expression on the other side. - The equations we study in Classes VI, VII and VIII are linear equations in one variable. In such

equations, the expressions which form the equation contain only one variable. Further, the equations

are linear, i.e., the highest power of the variable appearing in the equation is 1. - A linear equation may have for its solution any rational number.
- An equation may have linear expressions on both sides. Equations that we studied in Classes VI

and VII had just a number on one side of the equation. - Just as numbers, variables can, also, be transposed from one side of the equation to the other.
- Occasionally, the expressions forming equations have to be simplified before we can solve them

by usual methods. Some equations may not even be linear to begin with, but they can be brought

to a linear form by multiplying both sides of the equation by a suitable expression. - The utility of linear equations is in their diverse applications; different problems on numbers, ages,

perimeters, combination of currency notes, and so on can be solved using linear equations.
