# Find and correct the errors in the statement: 5y + 2y + y - 7y = 0

**Solution:**

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

Given,

5y + 2y + y - 7y = 0

Solving LHS we get,

5y + 2y + y - 7y

= 8y - 7y

= y

But RHS = 0

Thus, LHS ≠ RHS

The correct statement is 5y + 2 y + y - 7y = y
