# Solve the following equation and check your result: x = 4/5 (x + 10)

**Solution:**

A mathematical equation that represents the relationship between two expressions on either side of the equal sign (=) is a Simple Equation. An equation consists of variables and numerical constants.

x = 4/5 (x + 10)

Multiplying both sides by 5,

5x = 4(x + 10)

⇒ 5x = 4x + 40 [Using distributive property on RHS]

Simplifying further,

5x - 4x = 40

Therefore, x = 40
