# Find and correct the errors in the statement: (2x)^{2} + 5x = 4x + 5x = 9x

**Solution:**

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

Given,

(2x)^{2} + 5x = 4x + 5x = 9x

Solving LHS we get,

(2x)^{2} + 5x = 4x^{2} + 5x

But RHS is given as 4x + 5x

Also, 4x^{2} + 5x ≠ 9x

Thus, L.H .S. ≠ R.H.S.

The correct statement is (2x)^{2 }+ 5x = 4x^{2 }+ 5x

**Video Solution:**

## Find and correct the errors in the statement: (2x)² + 5x = 4x + 5x = 9x
