1. Given 2. Find 3. Equation 4. Solution

The first step is produce the radical equation that needs solving.

That will depend on what type of an equation it is but for a simple equation like: 2x+4 = 10 the four steps can be:- 1 2x+4 = 10 => write out equation 2 2x+4-4 = 10-4 => subtact 4 from both sides 3 2x = 6 => collect like terms together 4 x = 3 => divide both sides by 2

no. an individual step might be, but not all.

The 1st step would have been to show a particular quadratic equation in question.

That depends on the equation; you need to give some examples of what you want factored. There are four steps to solving an equation. Should any other factors be accounted for when solving an equation? Should any factors be accounted for when explaining how to solve an equation?

Yes, but it depends on your mathematical skills and confidence.

The answer is....... 1. read the problem 2. determine the unknowns and represent them 3. write an equation 4. solve the equation 5. answer the question

The answer will depend very much on the nature of the equation. The steps required for a one-step equation are very different from the steps required for a partial differential equation. For some equations there are no straightforward analytical methods of solution: only numerical methods.

There is no equality symbol in the question and so no equation!

Each method of doing something has its own steps. Whether or not any steps can be eliminated will depend on how much [unnecessary] detail the steps go into.

Yes. Since "these" do not exist, cjanging them should not make a difference.
