    I just worked out each equation and tested all its solutions.

    Yes, but we can't assume that -4/3 is the only solution for each choice. . If you do that then You won't know which choices have more than one solution.

    I mean, I worked out each equation and got the answers and tested each solution for each answer to see if it was true.
