    Let’s assume

    number of gold medals were won in sports other than swimming =x

    we are given

    total number of gold medals =63

    number of gold medals in swimming =12

    so,

    total number of gold medals =number of gold medals in swimming+number of gold medals were won in sports other than swimming

    so, we will get equation as

     63=12+x

    now, we can solve for x

     63-12=12+x-12

     x=63-12

    so, equation is

     x=63-12 …………Answer
