Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oops sorry, the last one should be z=(10+6z)/6 . sorry, other than that you should be good.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and what did you get? the answer provided by Albertoimus is wrong btw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no that is incorrect 3 + 6z = 13 + 6z  6z  6z what are you left with?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why would you subtract 6z? s/he'll end up with 3=13, which is incorrect. s/he's trying to solve for z.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@rejectz48 no, what albertoinus has is the correct result of subtracting 6z from both sides @Albertoimus this does tell you the answer; namely that there is no answer that is, no real solutions since 3=13 is never true.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so there is no solution @TuringTest

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the solution should be z=(10+6z)/6. however, if you don't have a number to replace z, then there's no solution.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you follow through what you have and try to isolate z you get z=(10+6z)/6 z=5/3+z 0=5/3 again you see that by trying to solve for z you get a contradiction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0all in all, no solution.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Possible solutions... x is unknown, a and b are constants x=a, one solution (a) x=x or a=a, infinite solutions a=b, no solutions
