The equation is -2y + 16 = 10
That word "equals" in there makes it an equation.
y = 10
-2x + 8 = 7x - 10 is technically an equation, in and of itself.
y is the variable
It is an equation and the value of x is 8
That is called an equation. Any time a certain amount of numbers equals another number, that is called an equation. This is a perfect example of one, as 10 does in fact equal 10.
The value of X is 6.
It is an equation and the value of x works out as 88
