**What is the difference between an equation and an expression?
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 = when n=2
3X2+10=
6+10=
16= n
N=16
