lhs -> rhs represents a rule that transforms lhs to rhs.
lhs: left hand side
rhs: right hand side

I understand what is meant here. rhs expression will be assigned to lhs.
For example, with the rule x->2 the value 2 will be assigned to variable x.
However, I am confused with the word "transform" here.
Do you say that the rule will transform x to 2 (as the definition above) in this case?
"Transforms" is a little odd. I would say it "assigns" 2 to x.
