Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well that is correct, if you subtract 2 from both sides, but i was saying to subtract 2x from both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if you have 2x + 2 = 2x + 5, and you subtract 2x from both sides you get 2 = 5, since 2 does not equal 5 this does not have any solutions
