Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2since after you distribute the 2 on the left side, both side are the same so it is all real numbers or infinitely many solutions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but when you subtract the two together, are they not equal to eachother I got 2x=2x at the end

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, 2x=2x is a true statement. they are equal

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i would not be no solution because they cancel out?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2exactly, 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and 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!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea thats what i did so it would be no solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no, if x=x than x could be any number so it is all real numbers/infinitely many solutions!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0all real numbers then

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2sorry 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2just 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!
