# Find and correct the errors in the statement: (7x + 5) / 5 = 7x

**Solution:**

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

Given,

(7x + 5) / 5 = 7x

Solving LHS we get,

(7x + 5)/5

= (7x/5) + (5/5)

= (7x/5) + 1

But RHS is given as 7x

Thus, L.H.S. ≠ R.H.S

The correct statement is (7x + 5) / 5 = (7x / 5) + 1
