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

but when you subtract the two together, are they not equal to eachother I got 2x=2x at the end
Alex_Mattucci
  • Alex_Mattucci
yes, 2x=2x is a true statement. they are equal
anonymous
  • anonymous
so i would not be no solution because they cancel out?
Alex_Mattucci
  • Alex_Mattucci
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!

  • anonymous
yea thats what i did so it would be no solution
Alex_Mattucci
  • Alex_Mattucci
no, if x=x than x could be any number so it is all real numbers/infinitely many solutions!
anonymous
  • anonymous
all real numbers then
Alex_Mattucci
  • Alex_Mattucci
yes
Alex_Mattucci
  • Alex_Mattucci
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

  • anonymous
alright thanks that helped
Alex_Mattucci
  • Alex_Mattucci
no problem!
Alex_Mattucci
  • Alex_Mattucci
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!
