## hunterhoff 2 years ago Create your own two-step equation with All Real Numbers as the solution. Show the steps to solving the equation to prove the solution All Real Numbers. My answer is: -2(x + 3) = -2(x + 1) - 4 -2x-6 =-2x-2-4 -2x-6=-2x-6 -2x=-2x x=-2x/-2 Is this right?

1. UmmmHELP

I think...

2. UmmmHELP

are there other options or just that one?

3. hunterhoff

There were no options, I had to come up with one

4. UmmmHELP

hmmm

5. Study23

Well, this problem is a case in which \(\ \Huge x=All Real Numbers \).

6. hunterhoff

Lol so is it correct?

7. UmmmHELP

Yeah im not sure...sorry!

8. Study23

One moment...

9. hunterhoff

Ok :)

10. Study23

So, what you have is mostly correct. |dw:1351659038210:dw| Because we have the same expressions on both sides of the equation sign, x could be any real number, and the equation would render true. Does that make sense?

11. hunterhoff

Umm I think so

12. hunterhoff

Would it meet my teachers approval?

13. Study23

The correct answer then, for this problem, would be "All Real Numbers". Additionally, your question states prove that the solution to the eqn is all real numbers.

14. hunterhoff

Oh ok, thanks! :)

15. Study23

Np! :D
