For a value to be a solution to an equation, when you substitute the value for the variable, the equation becomes true.
B is the variable.
2 is the solution
Substitute 2 for B
The equation is true.
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)
How is this different from determining if a value is a solution to an equation?
If you mean: 9n = 3 then the value of n is 1/3 which is the solution to the equation
That's the "solution" of the equation.
It is the solution of the given equation.
what the solution to this equation x+15=28 If you mean: x+15 = 28 then the value of x works out as 13
Any number that makes an equation true is a 'solution of an equation'. it is a solution
Such a value is said to be a solution, or a root, of the equation.
If you mean 5x = 140 then the value of x is 140/5 = 28
A solution to an equation is a set of values for the variables in the equation which make it true.
In algebra, one solution means that there is only one real value x that will satisfy its equation.
y = -2.5 is a equation. And solution to the equation is finding the value of the variable. If we see the equation y is already equal to -2.5 which is the solution to the equation.
Such a value is called a "solution" or "root" of an equation.
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
If you mean: 8x = 120 then the value of x is 15
If you found the value of x that is a solution to an equation, you want to substitute that value back into the original equation, to check that it indeed satisfies the equation. If it does not satisfy the equation, then you made an error in your calculations, and you need to rework the problem.
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.
If you mean: 749 = 5q then the value of q is 749/5 = 149.8
If you mean x+4 = 13 then the value of x is 9
If you mean: 3x-9 = 12 then the value of x is 7
It means that the equation has no way of working it out / There is no answer.
x = -8 already is a solution. If an equation has been changed until the value of x is found, and this value is accurate to the original equation, then the equation has been solved.
Without an equality sign the given expression is not an equation but if you mean -6x = 321 then the value of x works out as -53.5 which is the solution to the equation.
Without an equality sign it can't be considered to be an equation. But if you mean: 17a = 17 then the value of a is 1 because 17*1 = 17
The Solution of an equation is the value of the variable that makes the equation truean answer
