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

**Solution:**

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

Given,

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

Solving LHS we get,

L.H.S = x(3x + 2) = 3x^{2} + 2x [Using distributive property]

But, RHS = 3x^{2} + 2

Thus, L.H.S ≠ R.H.S.

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