No solution identity

No Solution & Identity

More with variables on both sides

Click on the screen to proceed through this lesson.


Tricky questions

Tricky Questions…

  • Not every equation has a solution…like x = 5

  • Sometimes you’ll get 5 = 9

    • This is false… 5 ≠ 9

    • We’ve lost the variable

    • The answer is type of equation is NO SOLUTION


Example 1

Example 1

18x – 5 = 3(6x – 2)

18x – 5 = 18x – 6

-18x-18x

-5 = -6

False… therefore the answer is:

No Solution


Example 2

Example 2

a – 4a = 2a + 1 – 5a

-3a = -3a + 1

+3a+3a

0 = 1

False… therefore the answer is:

No Solution


More tricky questions

More tricky questions…

  • Sometimes you’ll get 5 = 5

  • This is a true statement

    • But…we’ve lost the variable.

    • The answer to this equation is IDENTITY

    • This means you may pick any number for the variable and it will make a true statement when you check your answer.


Example 3

Example 3

14 – (2x + 5) = -2x + 9

14 – 2x – 5 = -2x + 9

9 – 2x = -2x + 9

+2x+2x

9 = 9

True… therefore the answer is:

Identity


Ex 3 continued

EX 3 continued

  • Since the solution to

    4 – (2x + 5) = -2x + 9

    is Identity…you may pick any number for x to check. All real numbers are possible solutions.


Example 4

Example 4

y – 5 = -(5 – y)

y – 5 = -5 + y

-y -y

-5 = -5

True… therefore the answer is:

Identity
