    Infinitely or no solution?

    Well I put in a random point and needless to say that didn't get equal to 4. That's no solution correct? Just double checking.

    you are correct, but not for that reason. (your reasoning is totally off by the way, you could get a similar result even if there was a solution by plotting in "random" points).

    obviously there is no solution. the left hand side of both equations are the same. we can't have something equal to 4 and equal to 5 at the same time.

    I see now, your reasoning makes sense.
