# Rules for solving equations

- Subtraction:
- \(x + 2 = 10\)
- Subtract 2 from both sides

- \(x + 2 = 10\)
- Addition:
- \(x - 2 = 10\)
- Add 2 to both sides

- \(x - 2 = 10\)
- Division:
- \(2x = 10\)
- Divide both sides by 2

- \(2x = 10\)
- Multiplication:
- \(\frac{x}{2} = 10\)
- Multiply both sides for 2

- \(\frac{x}{2} = 10\)
