Identify the equation as an identity, inconsistent equation or conditional equation.
my answer is it is an inconsistent equation
sure looks very consistent to me
(-3/2)x = 7/4 - 1
(-3/2)x = 3/4 (times 4 )
-6x = 3
x = -1/2
What is a conditional equation?
This is rather about the concept:
1) Identity means both sides are equal no matter what the value x will take.
2) inconsistent: means the equation is not true regardless the x value.
3) conditional: The equation is true at certain x value.
example: x+2=5, it is true if x=3.
