Chapter 2 - Solving Equations - 2-4 Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides - Lesson Check: 4

Answer

no solution

Work Step by Step

Distribute 2 to have: $4x-5=4x+2$ Add 5 to both sides to have: $4x=4x+7$ Subtract $4x$ from both sides to have: $4x-4x=4x+7-4x \\0=7$ This is a false statement, which means that the equation has no solution. No number will satisfy the equation.
