Left-Hand-Side and Right-Hand-Side

as in left hand side of equation and right hand side of equation

I have no idea how it specifically pertains to percentages, it's a general short-hand for telling you which side of the equation we're talking about.

As in:

√(x - 1) + 1/√(x - 1) = 0

I might say, the LHS simplifies to:

x/√(x - 1)

Then I might say, so now we can set this equal to the original RHS:

x/√(x - 1) = 0

Since the RHS is zero, I can drop the denominator:

x = 0 is my solution...except x = 0, would be out of the real domain...anyways
