 # Simple Equations

An equation is a basic building block of a mathematical problem. Problem statements can be turned into simple equations, which help us to solve them in an easier and a quick manner. If 3 apples and 4 oranges cost 100 rupees, can you make an equation out of it? Well, let’s study more about how to make the mathematical equations.

Question 1: What is the equation? Give some examples.

Answer: An equation refers to a mathematical sentence that has two equal sides separated by an equal sign. A simple example of mathematical equation is 7 + 12 = 19.  Moreover, if the 15 is the coefficient in the equation 15n = 75. In this, the unknown number is the variable.

Question 2: What is the longest equation?

Answer: As per sciencealert, the longest mathematical equation contains around 200 terabytes of text and is known as the Boolean Pythagorean Triples problem. California based mathematician Ronald Graham first proposed this equation in the 1980s.

Question 3: What are the types of equations?

Answer: Some types of the equation are: an algebraic equation or polynomial equation is an equation in which both sides are polynomials. In addition, linear equations for a degree of one, quadratic equation for the degree of two, and cubic equation for the degree of three are some of the common types of equations.

Question 4: What are the components of an equation?

Answer: An equation consist of expression that has one or more of these components such as numerical constants, symbolic names, mathematical operators, functions, and conditional expressions. All these expressions complete the equation.
