An equation is a statement that states the equality of two expressions that are connected by the equals sign “=”. Simply, an equation is written as two operands connected by an operator (“=”). Solving any equation involves determining which values of the variables make the equality true.

Types of Equations

There are a lot of types of equations, some of them are

  • Linear Equation
  • Quadratic Equation
  • Cubic equations
  • Polynomial Equation
  • Functional Equation
  • Parametric Equation and so on.


Question: Solve x2 +4x – 5 = 0

Solution: Given equation, x2 +4x – 5 = 0

Splitting the x term so that we can factorise it.
x2 + 5x – x – 5 = 0

Factorising the equation
x(x + 5) – 1(x+5) = 0

Now we know that either x-1 should be 0 or x+5 should be
(x-1)(x+5) =0

So, x -1 = 0 or x + 5 = 0
=> x = 1 or x = -5

So the solution is x = 1 or -5
