Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I'm not going to provide any work, because the work would be pointless. Clearly there is no solution.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Okay @inkyvoyd, if you prefer x  7 = 14 + x x  x = 14 + 7 0 = 21 <False (No solution)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Exactly. THe solution (to the problem) is that there is no solution to the problem. it is inconsistence LOL

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Saying that no solution is a solution is a outright contradiction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0your problem was x7=14+x... so you would get the x values to one side, by subtracting or adding, then you would add 7 over because it was originally a negative... finally when you add those two together you get 21x, because the x was to the right of the 14 originally x7=14+x 7=14x 21x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no, solution and solution are different. I am referring to two different solutions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2actually, the unreal solution would be x= infinity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the 2 lines are parallel, the theory says the lines intersect at infinity the above can also be understood if you take the ratio of heights with x>inf ratio comes out to be 1 kudos! ^_^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3No bro, lines extend infinitely and if they are parallel, they never intersect. There's no such thing as lines connecting at infinity. The only way you can say that is if you've been to infinity. No one has, so no one can make such a claim.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2as i said, thats just a theory what i mean is lim x> inf (x7)/(14+x) thats ofcorse 1 limits is all theoretical !

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2suppose we are checking continuity at x>0 we can not reach the next number to 0 ofcorse, but still, it can be theoretically calculated.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0strange question but, a solution is a value such that the equation is true. the solution is the null set or just what @hero said, no solution
