Chapter 2 - Section 2.1 - Linear Equations in One Variable - Exercise Set: 38

Answer

No solution

Work Step by Step

Original Equation 4(x+2)+4=4x-8 Distribute 4x+8+4=4x-8 Simplify 4x+12=4x-8 Subtract 4x from both sides 12=-8 This equation is incorrect, as 12 is not equal to -8. Therefore, there are no possible x values that satisfy the equation, so there is no solution.
