# Shifting one term from one side of an equation to another side with a change of sign is known as

(a) commutativity

(b) transposition

(c) distributivity

(d) associativity

**Solution:**

As we know that:

Shifting one term from one side of an equation to another side with a change of sign is known as transposition.

Hence out of the four options, the correct option is (b) transposition

**✦ Try This:** The value of the variable for which the equation is satisfied is called (a) solution, (b) commutativity, (c) distributivity, (d) associativity

As we know that:

The value of the variable for which the equation is satisfied is called a solution or root of the equation.

Hence out of the four options, the correct option is (a) solution
