Equations

## Definition

An algebraic equation is a mathematical statement that shows the equality of two algebraic expressions. It's also another way of referring to a polynomial equation.

## Description

Algebraic equations are central to algebra and involve variables, constants, and arithmetic operations. They are used to represent relationships and solve problems. For instance, the equation 2x + 3 = 7 can be solved to find x. Algebraic equations come in various forms, including linear, quadratic, and polynomial equations.

In real-world applications, algebraic equations model scenarios such as calculating distances, predicting profits, and determining rates. They are essential for fields like engineering, economics, and physics. Understanding algebraic equations helps students develop logical thinking and problem-solving skills.
