***************************************
Equation- is a mathematical statement, in symbols, that two things are exactly the same (or equivalent). Equations are written with an equal sign. Yes, you can solve for a variable in an equation.
Example: 2+3+5=10
Expression- is a symbol or combination of symbols that represents a quantity or a relationship between quantities. No, you cannot solve for a variable in an expression. Still, you can simplify it.
Example: 3 X n +10 =

1. Reiny

I would put a variable in your first example
e.g. 2x + 3 = 13

and in the second example, don't use a big X to show multiplication
put it this way:
3(n+10)

2. Anonymous

An expression consists of many things such as variables, constants, operation signs as well as numerals. An example of an algebraic expression is 5x-3, and an example of an algebraic equation is 19 + x= 47. Can you solve for a variable in an expression
