 Question 107661: determine whether the equation is an identity, a conditional equation or an inconsistent equation. -4(x+6)+6=2x-6(x+7)Found 2 solutions by jim_thompson5910, stanbon:Answer by jim_thompson5910(28715)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Start with the given equation Distribute Combine like terms on the left side Combine like terms on the right side Add 18 to both sides Add 4x to both sides Combine like terms on the left side Combine like terms on the right side Simplify Since this equation is never true for any x value, this means there are no solutions. So the equation is inconsistent Answer by stanbon(57967)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!determine whether the equation is an identity, a conditional equation or an inconsistent equation. -4(x+6)+6=2x-6(x+7) -4x-24+6 = 2x-6x-42 -4x-18 = -4x-42 -18 = -42 Inconsistent ================= Cheers, Stan H.
