Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02(2x + 5) = 4(X + 3) 4x + 10 = 4x + 12 4x + 10  10 = 4x + 12  10 4x = 4x + 2 4x  4x = 4x  4x + 2 0 = 2 So, how many solutions can this line have? Do you know?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First you need to distribute any numbers outside of the parenthesis through the parenthesis (that was a horrible explanation I'm sorry...) 2(2x+5)=4(x+3) 4x+10=4x+3 then you try to get x on one side of the equation so you can solve for it. 4x4x=0 10≠3 , therefore there are no solutions to the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0infinite solutions would be like if the equation was 3 = 3, as any number could be placed in x to solve the equation. one solution would be like x = 3, as only one number can equal x for the problem to be correct. no solution would be 4 = 7, as this is incorrect, and no number can be placed in x for it to work
