Solution

The correct option is B

Transposition


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+22=172 i.e., 3x=172.
Instead of following the above process, 2 is shifted to the other side of the equation.
Therefore, we get 3x=172
This process is known as transposition.
