Introduction: Simple equation is a mathematical statement that two algebraic expressions are equal. The two quantities are connected with equality sign.

Simple equation can be solved by: (a) balancing method and (b)collecting like terms.

Example 1: Solve 5z + 6 = 26 by:

(a) balancing method and; (b) Collecting like terms

Solution

(a) By balancing method:

5z + 6 = 26

Subtract 6 from both sides

5z + 6 – 6 = 26 – 6

5z = 20

Divide both sides by 5

z = 4

(b) By collecting like terms:

5z + 6 = 26

collect like terms

5z = 26 – 6

5z = 20

Divide both sides by 5

z = 4
