A-95.

For the following equations, solve for $x$. Check your solution, if possible. Record your work.

1. $3x-7=3x+1$

Add $7$ to both sides.

$3x-7=3x+1$
$\ \ \ +7\ \ \ \ \ \ +7$

Subtract $3x$ from both sides.

$3x=3x+8$
$-3x-3x$

$0=8$

The statement is not true; therefore, the answer is: No Solution.

1. $-2x-5=-4x+2$

Follow the steps in part (a).

1. $2+3x=x+2+2x$

Follow the steps in part (a).

Any number.

1. $-(x-2)=x+2$

How does the negative sign in front of the parentheses change what is inside?
