## Define Transpose - It is a short-cut for solving equations

Definition:When any term or number is shifted from one side of sign "=" to the other side by changing its arithmetic operator ("-" or "+"), it's
called "Transpose"

Transpose is a short-cut for solving equations.

Remember, when transpose is done arithmetic operator "+" is converted to arithmetic operator "-" and vice-versa.

Lets try to solve following problems for further understanding:

Problem 1 : Solve p - 4 = 10
Answer : p - 4 = 10
Transpose "-4" L.H.S. to R.H.S ( and remember to change it into "+4")
and we get:
p = 10 + 4
solve R.H.S. and we get:
p = 14

Problem 2 : Solve 40 = x + 7
Answer : 40 = x + 7
Transpose "+7" R.H.S. to ?L.H.S ( and remember to change it into "-7")
and we get:
40 - 7 = x
solve L.H.S. and we get:
33 = x
