Transposition:
 Changing a term from one side of an equation to the other side is called transposition.
 If a term is moved (Transposed) from one side of an equation to the other then the sign of the term is changed.
 If a quantity dividing a side is moved (Transposed) to the other side, it multiplies the other side.
 If a quantity multiplying a side is moved (Transposed) to the other, it divides the other side.
 If the same term (same both in magnitude and sign) is present on both sides of an equation then it can be cancelled.
Example:
Solve the equation 2x+4 = 8.
Solution:
Moving (Transposing) +4 to the other side i.e., R.H.S.
2x = 84
2x = 4
Taking 2, which is a multiplying quantity to L.H.S.
x = 4/2
x = 2
Verification:
Substituting x = 2 in the equation
L.H.S. Þ 2x+4 = 2*2 + 4 = 4 + 4 = 8 = R.H.S.
\ x = 2 is the solution.
