    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
