is the answer no solution? options: all real numbers no solution 0 1
since after you distribute the 2 on the left side, both side are the same so it is all real numbers or infinitely many solutions
all values of x are solutions here.
Hope this helped!
but when you subtract the two together, are they not equal to eachother I got 2x=2x at the end
yes, 2x=2x is a true statement. they are equal
so i would not be no solution because they cancel out?
exactly, if you subtract 2x from each side it would be 0=0 which both sides are equal. if for instance x=5 than when you substitute in 5 for x, it comes out to 10 on each side. therefore both sides are equal to eachother.
and if you divided each side by 2 which is what you would/should do than it would be x=x where x could equal any number!
yea thats what i did so it would be no solution
no, if x=x than x could be any number so it is all real numbers/infinitely many solutions!
all real numbers then
sorry if my examples of 0=0 or 10=10 mixed you up. i was just showing that both sides were equal so there had to be a solution
alright thanks that helped
just know in the future, when you get a question like this where both side are the some it is all real numbers or infinitely many solutions. don't question it!
