How do you know when an equation has infinite solutions? I know an equation has infinite solutions when both sides have the same equation. For  example 5x-2 = 5x-2 Well no matter what you put for x, the answer will be the same on both sides. Therefore,  this is an equation that has infinite solutions.  How do you know when an equation has no solution?
