# x exceeds 3 by 7, can be represented as

(a) x + 3 = 2

(b) x + 7 = 3

(c) x - 3 = 7

(d) x - 7 = 3

**Solution:**

We can write x exceeds 3 by 7 mathematically in the form of linear equation as x - 3 = 7

Hence out of the four options, the correct option is (c) x - 3 = 7

**✦ Try This:** x exceeds 2 by 5, can be represented as

(a) x + 5 = 2 (b) x + 3 = 2 (c) x - 2 = 5 (d) x - 5 = 3

We can write x exceeds 2 by 5 mathematically as x - 2 = 5

Hence out of the four options, the correct option is (c) x - 2 = 5
