10-27.

Solve each equation. Explain or justify your steps for part (b). Homework Help ✎

Simplify both sides.

2*x*+ 2 + 3 = 3*x*− 3

2*x*+ 5 = 3*x*− 3Add 3 to both sides leave only one constant.

2*x*+ 5 + 3 = 3*x*− 3 + 3

2*x*+ 8 = 3*x*

Then take 2*x*from both sides to isolate*x*.

2*x*+ 8 −2*x*= 3*x*− 2*x**x*= 8See the help for part (a).

No solution. Explain why.
