To do:

We have to find which of the given expressions are equations (with a variable).

Solutions:

An equation is a statement of equality between two expressions consisting of variables and/or numbers.

(a) \( 17=x+7 \) is an equation with variable $x$.

(b) \( (t-7)>5 \) is an inequality and not an equation.

(c) \( \frac{4}{2}=2 \) is a numerical equation.

(d) \( (7 \times 3)-19=8 \) is a numerical equation.

(e) \( 5 \times 4-8=2 x \) is an equation with variable $x$.

(f) \( x-2=0 \) is an equation with variable $x$.

(g) \( 2 m<30 \) is an inequality and not an equation.

(h) \( 2 n+1=11 \) is an equation with variable $n$.

(i) \( 7=(11 \times 5)-(12 \times 4) \) is a numerical equation.

(j) \( 7=(11 \times 2)+p \) is an equation with variable $p$.

(k) \( 20=5 y \) is an equation with variable $y$.

(1) \( \frac{3 q}{2}<5 \) is an inequality and not an equation.

(m) \( z+12>24 \) is an inequality and not an equation.

(n) \( 20-(10-5)=3 \times 5 \) is a numerical equation.

(o) \( 7-x=5 \) is an equation with variable $x$.
