In this chapter, we learn to solve one step equations in one variable by using addition and subtraction.

As we know that an equation is a mathematical statement that two expression are equal and its solution is a value of variable that makes the equation true.

First, note about the properties of equality.

Now, to find the solution of an equation, isolate the variable in one side of the equation by using inverse operation, which undo operation on the variable.

Lets understand it by solving some questions:

**Common Core Algebra 1 Unit 2 Chapter 1 Question No : 1 **

Solve x + 7 = 9
