## Argos 2 years ago You should be able to solve this? x - 7 = 14 + x

• This Question is Open
1. Hero

You can't solve it unless it has a solution.

2. inkyvoyd

^tautology.

3. inkyvoyd

Argos, what led you to that conclusion?

4. inkyvoyd

ChmE, what led you to that conclusion?

it's 21x

6. Hero

lol, no it's not

7. inkyvoyd

@woahitsmaddie , what led you to that conclusion? Guys, please back up final answers with the work needed to obtain them.

lol,,, yes it is

9. Hero

I'm not going to provide any work, because the work would be pointless. Clearly there is no solution.

10. inkyvoyd

Clearly there is.

11. Hero

Okay @inkyvoyd, if you prefer x - 7 = 14 + x x - x = 14 + 7 0 = 21 <-----False (No solution)

12. inkyvoyd

Exactly. THe solution (to the problem) is that there is no solution to the problem. it is inconsistence LOL

13. Hero

Saying that no solution is a solution is a outright contradiction

your problem was x-7=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 x-7=14+x -7=14x 21x

15. inkyvoyd

no, solution and solution are different. I am referring to two different solutions.

16. shubhamsrg

actually, the unreal solution would be x= infinity

17. shubhamsrg

the 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! ^_^

18. Hero

No 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.

19. shubhamsrg

as i said, thats just a theory what i mean is lim x-> inf (x-7)/(14+x) thats ofcorse 1 limits is all theoretical !

20. shubhamsrg

suppose we are checking continuity at x->0 we can not reach the next number to 0 ofcorse, but still, it can be theoretically calculated.

21. binarymimic

strange 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

22. abb0t

lol. limits r so random.
