# Find and correct the errors in the statement: 3x + 2x = 5x^{2}

**Solution:**

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

Given,

3x + 2x = 5x^{2}

Solving LHS we get,

3x + 2x = 5x

But RHS = 5x^{2}

Thus, L.H .S. ≠ R.H.S.

The correct statement is 3x + 2x = 5x
