# Find and correct the errors in the following mathematical statements. 4(x - 5) = 4x - 5

**Solution:**

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

Given,

4(x - 5) = 4x - 5

Solving LHS we get,

4(x - 5) = 4x - 20 [Using distributive property]

But RHS = 4x - 5

Thus, we see that LHS ≠ RHS

The correct statement is 4(x - 5) = 4x - 20
