    An equation is a statement of equality containing one or more variables.
    To solve an equation means, find the value of the variable for which the equation satisfy
    An example of an equation is x + 5 12.
    Solution:
    x + 5 = 12
    x = 12 - 5
    x = 7
    7 is a solution of the equation x + 5 = 12.
    Because
    x + 5 = 12
    7 + 5 = 12
    12 = 12
    Since both sides are, 7 satisfy to equation.

    This looks good -- as long as the definition is in your own words.

    One minor correction -- you forgot the equal sign in this line.

    An example of an equation is x + 5 12
