# 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.

To solve this linear equation, we follow two steps.

1) Isolate the variable

2) Group the like terms and add/ subtract

Isolate the variable d using the method of transposing, we get:

d – 2d – 10 + 7 = d – 3d + 8 – 10

d -2d -d + 3d = 8 - 10 + 10 -7

On adding or subtracting the like terms, we get :

d = 1

### Thus, the solution to the linear equation is d = 1
