Start with the given inequality. Distribute. Add to both sides. Add to both sides. Combine like terms on the left side. Combine like terms on the right side. Simplify (ie 0x=0) Since the inequality is ALWAYS true, regardless of the value of 'x', this means that ANY value of 'x' will satisfy the original inequality. So there are an infinite number of solutions. Unfortunately, there are many classes of inequalities that have an "infinite number of solutions", but in this case, what I mean by "infinite number of solutions" is that any real number will work.
