  3. 3. Understanding Equations The process of finding the numerical value of the unknown in an equation. Solve an Equation The knowns (constants) and unknowns (variables) of an equation. In the equation X + 7 = 10, the terms are X, 7, and 10. Terms The parts of an equation that are given. In equations, the knowns are constants (numbers), which are quantities having a fixed value. In the equation X + 7 = 10, 7 and 10 are the knowns or constants. Constants (Knowns) A mathematical operation or a quantity stated in symbolic form, not containing an equal sign. X + 7 is an expression. Expression A mathematical statement expressing a relationship of equality; usually written as a series of symbols that are separated into left and right sides and joined by an equal sign. X + 7 = 10 is an equation. Equation A mathematical representation of a fact, rule, principle, or other logical relation in which letters represent number quantities. Formula
