## equation

(ɪˈkweɪʒən; -ʃən)
n
1. (Mathematics) a mathematical statement that two expressions are equal: it is either an identity in which the variables can assume any value, or a conditional equation in which the variables have only certain values (roots)
2. the act of regarding as equal; equating
3. the act of making equal or balanced; equalization
4. a situation, esp one regarded as having a number of conflicting elements: what you want doesn't come into the equation.
5. the state of being equal, equivalent, or equally balanced
6. a situation or problem in which a number of factors need to be considered

## e·qua·tion

(ĭ-kwā′zhən)
1. Mathematics A written statement indicating the equality of two expressions. It consists of a sequence of symbols that is split into left and right sides joined by an equal sign. For example, 2 + 3 + 5 = 10 is an equation.
2. Chemistry A written representation of a chemical reaction, in which the symbols and amounts of the reactants are separated from those of the products by an equal sign, arrow, or a set of opposing arrows. For example, NaOH + HCl = NaCl + H2O is an equation.

"Even in numbers, we used to be told in school that to arrive at a mathematical solution, there is always a computational path one has to take, as proof that the process indeed gives rise to the stated solution."
Mining pool is a group of number of users pool their resources cooperatively to solve the mathematical solution and rewards use to distribute individually according to their work submitted to the pool.
It is important to note that usually experimental data or synthetic experimental data that could be obtained from a mathematical solution and corrupted by random noise, with a prescribed noise level, are used in inverse problems.
If I was batting when the declaration had to be made, the mental arithmetic was beyond me and so I had to turn to the pavilion where Glamorgan's twelfth man had been instructed to wave a handkerchief and call us off as soon as his mathematical solution approximated to the figures I had left him.
This is evident, for example, in Galileo's mathematical solution to the traditional physical paradox of the Rota Aristotelis.
The computer result serves as an empirical verification of the validity of the explicit and existing mathematical solution. The weights in the examples are also found by the alternative approach, using the Solver.
The complete mathematical solution has arrived and moreover the spectral investigation is prepared.
Many natural problems in dynamics, such as the three-body problem of celestial mechanics--for example, interactions of the sun, the moon and earth--have no exact mathematical solution. Mirzakhani found that in dynamical systems evolving in ways that twist and stretch their shape, the systems' trajectories "are tightly constrained to follow algebraic laws," said McMullen.
Fear not, for Birmingham boffin Simon Whitehouse has devised a mathematical solution to all those World Cup sticker album woes.
From the analysis of PACE Prioritization Matrix in Figure 5, the defected parts are put in the first prioritization to solve since it gives high impact to the output calculation and can solve by mathematical solution. The second prioritization parameter is different level of reliability of stations and mechanism in workstation because it has high impact on mathematical model but requires more complex mathematical solution to solve when compared to defected parts parameters.
