    What exactly are you asking here? 1.7a cannot = 10a

    Are you sure you are not missing something? just think: the left side has to equal the right side and 'a' is just a variable so if a = 1, then 1.7 = 10, which cannot be true

    Consider the following linear equation: 1.7a=10a Solve the above linear equation. Simplify your answer.

    Would a=8.3?

    the only thing you can do here is subtract 1.7a from both sides to get 8.3a=0; are you sure one of the a's isn't a b or any other variable?

    I'm sure. It doesn't make sense to me either. That's why I posted it on here. I'm really confused.

    1.7(0)=10(0) -->0=0

    It just said that 0 is the correct answer.

    Yes, that is correct. Sorry I overlooked that. Late nights lead to faulty math
