Step 1: 3x+2=17 Step 2: 3x=17−2 This process of shifting the number from one side of the equation to the other side is called as ___.
Root of equation
The correct option is B
Transposition is nothing but balancing the other side of the equality when we make any change on one side.
Here, in the equation 3x+2=17, when we add −2 on both sides, we get 3x+2−2=17−2 i.e., 3x=17−2. Instead of following the above process, 2 is shifted to the other side of the equation. Therefore, we get 3x=17−2 This process is known as transposition.
