# Find and correct the errors in the statement: 2x + 3y = 5xy

**Solution:**

An equation is a mathematical statement with an 'equal to' symbol between two algebraic expressions that have equal values.

Given,

2x + 3y = 5xy

Solving LHS we get,

2x + 3y = 2x + 3y

But RHS = 5xy

Thus, L.H.S ≠ R.H.S.

The correct statement is 2x + 3y = 2x + 3y
