Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So was I right with the x=6?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we're left with the equation `8 = 6` which is always false. 8 and 6 are two different numbers that aren't equal So that means there is no solution. There are no numbers we can replace x with to make a true equation. It's impossible

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04x 8=2(2x3) 4x  8 = 4x6 4x = 4x + 2 no possible solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and by "the 4x terms cancel" I mean, subtract 4x from both sides 4x4x = 0x = 0 which goes away
