## AP State Board Syllabus 7th Class Maths Notes Chapter 3 Simple Equations

→ Simple equations help in solving various problems in daily life.
Eg: After 5 years Ramesh’s age is 15 years. What is his present age?
Solution. Let Ramesh’s present age be x years
After 5 years Ramesh’s age = x + 5
By problem, x + 5 = 15
x = 15 – 5 = 10 years
∴ Ramesh’s present age = 10 years

→ To balance an equation
a) Same number can be added on both sides.
b) Same number can be subtracted from both sides.
c) Multiply both sides with same number.
d) Divide both sides with same number.
So that the equality remains unaltered. → An equation remains same if the L.H.S and R.H.S are interchanged.

→ To solve a simple equation we transform term from one side to another.
While transforming term from one side to another
‘+’ quantity becomes ‘-‘ quantity
‘-‘ quantity becomes ‘+’ quantity
‘×’ quantity becomes ‘÷’ quantity
‘÷’ quantity becomes ‘×’ quantity
(i.e.) when the terms are transposed they get opposite signs and the term which multiplies one side, divides the other side.
