## 4-Digit Addition Equations

### Addition Equations: Learn

An equation is a mathematical statement that has an expression on the left side of the equals sign (=) with the same value as the expression on the right side. An example of an equation is 22 + 22 = 44.

One of the terms in an equation may not be known and needs to be determined. The unknown term may be represented by a letter such as x (e.g. 22 + x = 44). The equation is solved by finding the value of the unknown x that makes the two sides of the equation have the same value.

Use the subtractive equation property to find the value of x in addition equations. The subtractive equation property states that the two sides of an equation remain equal if the same number is subtracted from each side.

Example:

5000 | + | x | = | 12000 |

-5000 | -5000 | |||

x | = | 7000 |

Check the answer by substituting (7000) for x in the original equation. The answer is correct if the expressions on each side of the equals sign have the same value.

5000 + 7000 = 12000

12000 = 12000 (Correct!)
