# Find and correct the errors in the statement: (3x^{2 }+ 1) / 3x^{2} = 1 + 1 = 2

**Solution:**

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

Given,

(3x^{2 }+ 1) / 3x^{2} = 1 + 1 = 2

Solving LHS we get,

(3x^{2 }+1) / 3x^{2} = (3x^{2}/3x^{2}) + (1/3x^{2})

= 1 + (1/3x^{2})

But RHS is given as 1 + 1 = 2

Thus, L.H.S ≠ R.H.S

The correct statement is (3x^{2 }+ 1)/ 3x^{2} = 1 + (1/3x^{2})

**Video Solution:**
