-- If the equation has only one variable (like 'x' or 'y'), and the only power of the

variable anywhere in the equation is '1', then the equation has one solution.

-- If the variable appears raised to powers higher than '1', then there are as many

solutions as the highest power of the variable.

-- If the equation has two or more variables, then there are an infinite number of solutions.

Any number that makes an equation true is a 'solution of an equation'. it is a solution

If A is a number that makes an equation true, then A is a "solution" to the equation.

A solution to an equation is a set of values for the variables in the equation which make it true.

The solution (or solution set, if more than one number).

If this value a satisfy the equation, then a is a solution for that equation. ( or we can say that for the value a the equation is true)

In a nonlinear equation, each variable must only have one solution.

A number that makes an equation true is its solution.

The solution set is the answers that make an equation true. So I would call it the solution.

A solution to an question makes the equation true. For example a solution to the equation 3x = x + 6 is x = 3, since 3(3) = 3+6.

A number that makes an equation true is a solution. If there is more than one answer to an equation (such as an equation like): (x-2)(x+4)=0 then it is called a solution set (and in this case would be x={-4, 2}).

Solution. A solution of an equation is a number that satisfy the equation. This means that if you replace this number on the equation and check it, the equation will be true. When you solve an equation you can find some roots, but not all of them satisfy the equation. Thus always check your answers after resolving your equation, and eliminate as solution the answers that don't make the equation true or undefined.

Substitute the number in the equation. If the resulting statement is true the number is a solution to the equation.

It is the set of values for all the variables in the equation which make the equation true.

For a value to be a solution to an equation, when you substitute the value for the variable, the equation becomes true. 4+B=6 B is the variable. 2 is the solution Substitute 2 for B 4+2=6 The equation is true.

Substitute the value found back into the equation, evaluate the expressions and see if the resulting equation is true.

It's callled the "solution" of the equation.

No, an expression cannot have any solutions. It is an expression, not an equation (or inequality).

A solution or root makes a true statement when substituted in an equation.

The solution to an equation consists of the value (or values) of all the variables such that the equation is true when the variable(s) take those values.

Substitute the coordinates of the point into the equation and if the result is a true statement then the point is a solution, and if not it isn't.

the solution is the answer to the equation. A solution is any value that makes the equation true. x + 2 = 10 has exactly one solution ....x=8 x + 2 > 10 has infinitely many solutions....x=9 or 10 or 11 or 12 or 13, etc
