What is unknown?

Value of the variable

Reasoning:

In an equation values of left-hand side (LHS) and right-hand side (RHS) are equal. The two sides of the equation are balanced. We perform mathematical operations so that the balance is not disturbed.

Steps:

\[x- 2= 7\]

Transposing (\(-2\)) to RHS we get:

\begin{align}x &= {\rm{7}} + {\rm{ 2 }}\\\text{ }\!\!~\!\!\text{ }x&=9\end{align}

Reasoning:

In an equation values of left-hand side (LHS) and right-hand side (RHS) are equal. The two sides of the equation are balanced. We perform mathematical operations so that the balance is not disturbed.

Steps:

Transposing \(17\) to RHS, we get:

Equations

What is unknown?

Value of the variable

Reasoning:

In an equation values of left-hand side (LHS) and right-hand side (RHS) are equal. The two sides of the equation are balanced. We perform mathematical operations so that the balance is not disturbed.

Steps:

Transposing \(1\) to RHS, we get ,

\[\begin{align}\frac{x}{3}\,\,\, &= \,\,\frac{7}{{15}}\,\, - \,\,1\\\frac{x}{3}\,\, &= \,\,\frac{{7 - 15}}{{15}}\\\frac{x}{3}\,\, &= \,\,\frac{{ - 8}}{{15}}\end{align}\]

Now multiplying both sides by \(3\), we get

\[\begin{align}\frac{x}{3} \times 3\,\, &= \,\, - \frac{8}{{15}} \times 3\\x\,\, &= \,\,\frac{{ - 8}}{5}\end{align}\]
