When the LHS = RHS of an equation, then it is said to be a **Balanced Equation**.

**1. If we add the same number to both the sides**.

We can add the same number on both the sides of a balanced equation, the equation will remain the same.

12 – 8 = 3 + 1

If we add 3 to both the sides,

12 – 8 + 3 = 7

3 + 1 + 3 = 7

LHS = RHS

**2. If we subtract the same number from both sides**.

We can subtract the same number from both the sides of a balanced equation, the equation will remain the same.

12 – 8 = 3 + 1

If we subtract 3 from both the sides,

12 – 8 – 3 = 1

3 + 1 -3 = 1

LHS = RHS

**3. If we multiply the same number to both the sides**.

We can multiply the same number on both the sides of a balanced equation, the equation will remain the same.

12 – 8 = 3 + 1

If we multiply 3 to both the sides,

LHS = RHS

**4. If we divide the same number from both sides**.

We can divide the same number from both the sides of a balanced equation, the equation will remain the same.

12 – 8 = 3 + 1

If we divide both the sides by 2,

LHS = RHS
