    The equality holds for any value you choose. Hence, infinitely many solutions.

    If the two equations on either side of the '=' sign are exactly the same after you simplify and expand, you have many solutions. If the you can solve for x by rearranging the equation and siimplifying you have one solution. That is the lines intersect at one point. If the equations are different on either side of the '=' sign, and after expanding simplifying and solving for x you do not have an answer you have no solutions.
