compare and contrast: below are two equations. solve each equation and compare the two solutions. choose the statement that is true about each solution. equation #1 2x3=17 5x+3=12
A. equation #1 and equation #2 have the same number of solutions
B. equation #1 has more solutions than equation #2
C. equation #1 has fewer solutions than equation #2
I think C

since each equation is a straight line, each has exactly one solution.
Think on it. A solution is where the graph intersects the xaxis. Two distinct lines intersect in exactly one point, unless they are parallel.
