no real number solutions

Work Step by Step

We are given that $2-6x=6(1-x)$. In order to solve, we can use the distributive property to simplify the right side of the equation. $2-6x=6(1-x)=6-6x$ Add 6x to both sides. $2=6$ This statement is not true, so this equation has no real number solutions for x.
