## Intermediate Algebra (6th Edition)

We are given that $3x-4=3(x+1)$. In order to solve, we can use the distributive property to simplify the right side of the equation. $3x-4=3(x+1)=3x+3$ Subtract 3x from both sides. $-4=3$ This statement is not true, so this equation has no real number solutions for x.
