Can you please explain this problem to me?
Determine whether 30 is a solution of the equation x-13=14. Is 30 a solution?
My answer is no.
x-13=14
30-13=14
No, not true.
Thanks.

So is 30-13 equal to 14 or not?
I personally feel strongly that 14+16 = 30

I answered no to this question and got it wrong so could you please explain how to do it?
Thanks.
