    well, when you want to know how many solutions can be found for a given equation, you just look at the highest power. For example, \(x^2+2x-3\) will have 2 solutions, and \(x^5+3x^2-2x+1\) will have five solutions. Does that make sense?

    So it would be none seeing how there is not a power in the problem?

    no, there is an understood power of 1. make sense? isn't \(5x^1\) the same as \(5x\)?

    Yeah, so it would be 10 solutions?

    No. Think about it.
