Lesson 7
All, Some, or No Solutions
Problem 1
For each equation, decide if it is always true or never true.

\(x  13 = x + 1\)

\(x+\frac{1}{2} = x  \frac{1}{2}\)

\(2(x + 3) = 5x + 6  3x\)

\(x  3 = 2x  3 x\)

\(3(x5) = 2(x5) + x\)

Problem 2
Mai says that the equation \(2x + 2 = x +1\) has no solution because the left hand side is double the right hand side. Do you agree with Mai? Explain your reasoning.

Problem 3

Write the other side of this equation so it's true for all values of \(x\): \(\frac12(6x10)  x =\)

Write the other side of this equation so it's true for no values of \(x\): \(\frac12(6x10)  x = \)

Problem 4
Here is an equation that is true for all values of \(x\): \(5(x+2) = 5x+10\). Elena saw this equation and says she can tell \(20(x+2)+31=4(5x+10)+31\) is also true for any value of \(x\). How can she tell? Explain your reasoning.

Problem 5
Elena and Lin are trying to solve \(\frac12x+3=\frac72x+5\). Describe the change they each make to each side of the equation.
 Elena’s first step is to write \(3=\frac72x\frac12x+5\).
 Lin’s first step is to write \(x+6=7x+10\).

(From Unit 4, Lesson 4.)Problem 6
Solve each equation and check your solution.
\(3x6=4(23x)8x\)
\(\frac12z+6=\frac32(z+6)\)
\(97w=8w+8\)
