#### Answer

There are 6 steps to solve algebraic word problem.
Step 1: Read the problem thoroughly until you know very well.
Step 2: Note all given in the problem and what to find out.
Step 3: Let the unknown quantity either x or y.
Step 4: Write the equation of the problem in mathematical form.
Step 5: Solve the equation and find out unknown quantity.
Step 6: Replace the x or y to the unknown quantity.

#### Work Step by Step

To solve a variable in a problem to get a value which is satisfied the equation of a problem. The variable is anything for example \[2x+3=5\]solve the variable. It means to find the value of \[x\]which satisfied the given equation i.e.
\[\begin{align}
& 2x+3=5 \\
& 2x=2 \\
& x=1
\end{align}\]
It means\[x=1\] satisfied the equation \[2x+3=5\],then,
\[\begin{align}
& 2x+3=2\left( 1 \right)+3 \\
& =5
\end{align}\]
Hence, both are same.
It means\[x=1\] and it’s any unknown variable which is required to solve the problem and to get the solution.
