1. no solution equation

Simply states Solve:

6(2x-1)-12=7+12(x-1)

12X-6-12=12x-12+7

12x-18=12x-5

Is that the right answer because it does not look right??
I really NEED this extra credit!!

2. The solution is $x = \emptyset$ (i.e. the empty set). In other words it has no solution.

Hello,

this equation has no solution.

What you are doing here is to calculate the intersection of 2 parallel lines - which doesn't exist and therefore this equation must not have a solution.

tukeywilliams is right. there is no solutions for this equation. they would be parallel lines if you plotted them on a pair of axis. make sure you typed the right question

EDIT: Beaten by earboth... again

5. Extra Credit help

I typed it in right....so is my algebra correct up to the no solution part?

6. yes it is
