Chapter 1 - Equations and Inequalities - 1.1 Linear Equations - 1.1 Exercises: 35

Answer

The equation does not have a solution.

Work Step by Step

$4x + 28 = 2x + 24 + 2x + 2$ $4x + 28 = 4x + 26$ $4x +28-28 = 4x +26-28$ $4x = 4x-2$ $4x-4x = 4x-4x-2$ $0=-2$ This statement is untrue, so we know that the equation does not have a solution.
