Complete Equation With No Solutions Or Infinitely Many Solutions Worksheet

6 problems

In algebra, an equation with no solutions means that there is no value that satisfies the equation. On the other hand, an equation with infinitely many solutions means that any value of the variable satisfies the equation.

For Example: 

`i)` Find the missing number so that the equation has infinitely many solutions.

\(5x-3=5x+ \square\)

`ii)` Find the missing number so that the equation has no solutions.

\(2x+7=\square \, x-19\)

Solved Example

Q. Find the missing number so that the equation has infinitely many solutions. \newline3x10=3x+-3x - 10 = -3x + \underline{\hspace{1cm}}
  1. Infinitely many solutions: When does this equation have infinitely many solutions? Infinitely many solutions occur when the both sides of the equation are identical.
  2. Identical sides: -3x - 10 = -3x + ____\newlineTo have infinitely many solutions, the constants on both sides must also be the same.
  3. Matching constants: The constant on the left side is 10-10. For the equation to have infinitely many solutions, the constant on the right side must also be 10-10.
  4. Determining missing number: Therefore, the missing number in the equation is 10-10. \newline3x10=3x10-3x - 10 = -3x - 10
