# What is the value of n in the equation (n – 4) – 3 = 3 – (2n + 3)?

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

## Answer: n = 7/3

An equation is like a weighing balance with equal weights on both sides. If we add or subtract the same number from both sides of an equation, it still holds.

## Explanation:

(n – 4) – 3 = 3 – (2n + 3)

n - 4 - 3 = 3 - 2n - 3

n - 7 = -2n

3n = 7

n = 7/3
