## How do you write and solve?

When you write your solution you should:

- Give each important definition or equation its own line.
- Don’t bury too much algebra in a paragraph.
- Label equations or formulas or lemmas or cases you will use later very clearly.
- Remember that there’s always more paper.

**Where do you write equations?**

Write an equation or formula

- Choose Insert > Equation and choose the equation you want from the gallery.
- After you insert the equation the Equation Tools Design tab opens with symbols and structures that can be added to your equation.

### What’s the first step in solving the equation?

After simplifying, the first step in solving an equation with a variable on both sides is to get the variable on one side. This is done by reversing the addition or subtraction of one of the terms with the variable.

**How do you solve simple equations step by step?**

Solving Simple Equations. When solving a simple equation, think of the equation as a balance, with the equals sign (=) being the fulcrum or center. Thus, if you do something to one side of the equation, you must do the same thing to the other side.

## What is simple equation and its applications?

In our day to day lives, we generally come across many situations where we observe simple equations and its applications. What is Simple Equation? A mathematical equation which represents the relationship of two expressions on either side of the sign. It mostly has one variable and equal to symbol.

**How do you balance an equation in math?**

When solving a simple equation, think of the equation as a balance, with the equals sign (=) being the fulcrum or center. Thus, if you do something to one side of the equation, you must do the same thing to the other side. Doing the same thing to both sides of the equation (say, adding 3 to each side) keeps the equation balanced.

### How do you subtract 8 from the equation x + 8?

Some equations involve only addition and/or subtraction. Solve for x. To solve the equation x + 8 = 12, you must get x by itself on one side. Therefore, subtract 8 from both sides. To check your answer, simply plug your answer into the equation: Solve for y. To solve this equation, you must get y by itself on one side.
