equasion

Incorrect spelling, explanation: equasion is incorrect because in this case, we should use the suffix -tion, not -sion. These two suffixes are often mistaken, but the reason behind equation being correct is easy to remember. We use the noun suffix -tion when the verb ends with -ate. The verb form of this word is equate, so equation is the correct form.

equation

Correct spelling, explanation: -sion and -tion are commonly mistaken suffixes, which are really two options of the same suffix -ion. There are some rules to when use each of these, and in the case of equation, the reason is pretty simple – one of the rules state that -tion is used with verbs ending with -ate. The verb here is to equate, so equation is the correct form. Moreover, the word comes from French équation, which is from Latin aequationem. As you can see both origins use t not s in spelling. Therefore equation is the correct form and equasion is a mistake.
