Equations with an unknown
When solving a calibration with an unknown (a, b, ... n, m ... x, y ...) the point is to find out the value of these unknowns.

Solve equations (equivalence transformations)
When solving a calibration with an unknown (x) is about this unknown (x) to find out. The trick is to imagine an equation as a scale. The "weight" of both scales is changed so that in the end only x is on one pan and the solution number is on the other. If the balance is in equilibrium at that moment, you have the solution.

Simple equations
Exercise 3: Calculate the length of the sides x and y.
Exercise 4: Enter the correct values.
correct: 0 incorrect: 0
Exercise 5: Compute x from x.
If x appears as the result of an equation, the question arises: "How do you get from x to x?" One possibility is to multiply both sides of the equation by (1).
Examples:

Equations with brackets
Reshaping
Equations are solved by transforming them. In the end, the variable stands alone on one side and the solution on the other side of the equal sign.
May be on both sides of the equation
 the same number can be added or multiplied.
 multiplied by or divided by the same number (other than 0).
