Lesson 16
How Many Solutions?
Problem 1
Lin was looking at the equation \(2x32+4(3x2462) = 14x\). She said, “I can tell right away there are no solutions, because on the left side, you will have \(2x+12x\) and a bunch of constants, but you have just \(14x\) on the right side.” Do you agree with Lin? Explain your reasoning.

Problem 2
Han was looking at the equation \(6x4+2(5x+2)=16x\). He said, “I can tell right away there are no solutions, because on the left side, you will have \(6x+10x\) and a bunch of constants, but you have just \(16x\) on the right side.” Do you agree with Han? Explain your reasoning.
