The solution set is $(-\infty, +\infty)$. The equation is an identity, which means that the equation is true for all real numbers.

Work Step by Step

Distribute $\frac{1}{2}$ to have: $2a+3=3+2a \\2a+3 = 2a+3$ This is a true statement. Thus, the equation is true for all real numbers. The solution set is the set of all real numbers.
