Unformatted text preview: example having infinite solutions, the answer to 5x + 1 = 5x + 9 is actually no solution. How do you know when an equation has no solution? If an equation has infinite solutions, that means that you can put any number into the missing parts (variables, question marks, blanks) and it will equal itself or the same number every time. Example: 2x=2x if you put in any number for x, and do the equation, then you will get one number=itself. That means that it has infinite solutions. If it has no solution you will get an untrue answer. Like 5=3 when you see something like 5=3, it has no solution because 5 cannot equal 3. Only 5=5 and 3=3, not 5=3....
