How many solutions are there to the equation y = 14x – 9? Explain your answer. A.There are no solutions because no value can be used for the variable x for the equation to remain true. B.There is one solution because only one value can be used for the variable x for the equation to remain true. C.There are 2 solutions because only 2 values can be used for the variables for the equation to remain true. D.There are an infinite number of solutions because any value can be used for the variable x and the equation would remain true.

    we have here two variables, an x and y . you can plug in any value for x, and get a different value for y . if we represent solutions as ordered pairs (x,y) , we have solutions: ( x, 14x - 9 )

    you can plug in any number for x, so there seems to be more than 2

    do you see that there are many solutions, or ordered pairs that satisfy that equation y = 14x- 9
