What does it mean for a number to be the "solution" to an equation? Give an example of a variable equation and its solution. Explain in complete sentences how you know that number is the solution.
The number "satisfies" the equation ie if you substitute the number for the variable, the expression is valid. 4x = 8 Solution is 2 because 4*2 = 8
