# What is the solution to the linear equation? d – 10 – 2d + 7 = 8 + d – 10 – 3d

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

## The solution to the linear equation d – 10 – 2d + 7 = 8 + d – 10 – 3d is d = 1

Let's evaluate the equation

## Explanation:

First of all, we will try to club all the variables (d) from both sides together in this.

Simplifying each side individually, we will get:

d – 2d – 10 + 7 = d – 3d + 8 – 10

Hence, we will get :

– d – 3 = – 2d – 2

Now, moving the variables on LHS, we will get:

d = 1
