How To Solve A Simple Equation - I

Education : Maths

Let's say you are given the simple equation:

2x + 6 = 12

How do you solve it?

One method is trial and error: replace the value of 'x' until you find one that works.

This is foolproof, but the problem is it may take you a while to find the right number and waste time in an exam.

Here the answer is 3:
2 x 3 + 6 = 12 : yes, that's correct
