Why a solution of a word problem should be checked using the original wording of the problem and not the equation written from the wording.

    This isn't a question.

    This is a statement, telling you why a solution to a word problem should be checked to the original wording of the problem versus the equation written for the problem.

    This is because the equation, derived from the wording of the problem, could be wrong.
