not always but most of the time yes

Identities are "equations" that are always true. For example, the equation sin(x) = cos(x) is true for x = pi/4 + kpi radians where k is any integer [ = 45 + 180k degrees], but for any other value of x the equation is not true. By contrast, the equation sin2(x) + cos2(x) = 1 is true whatever the value of x. This is an identity.

You normally "solve" something when there is a variable involved. In this case there is no variable. All you have to do is decide whether it is true or false. If this is derived from an original equation (or, in this case, inequality) which involved variables, then if the equation (or inequality) without variables is true, it means it is true for ANY value of the variable. If it is false, the original equation (or inequality) can't be satisfied by any value of the variable.

4x = 24 is not any property. It is an equation which is true for some value of x, not for others.

Yes it’s true

Any number that makes an equation true is a 'solution of an equation'. it is a solution

Such a value is said to be a solution, or a root, of the equation.

It is the solution; sometimes also called the root.

No, it is part of the solution set.

In the equation x = 3, if x = 3, the equation is true, if x has any other value, it is not. The value of any other variable, such as y, is irrelevant. I would say that the answer is 0 because otherwise y is part of the equation which clearly it isnt.

linear equation in one variable

The root of any equation is a number which ... when substituted for the variable ...makes the equation a true statement.

not always but most of the time yes

x - 1 = x + 1

The solution.

equation is an expression equated to a value..what you have written is an expression. when equated to a value or any other expression makes it an equation.

In algebra, variables are represented by letters such as x. A variable could be any number. That number is the "value" of the variable. In an expression, you can choose a number to put in for x, and simplify to get a number which is the value of the expression. In an equation, you can solve for the value of x, which will be the value of x which makes the equation true.
