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 2x-3=-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

  • math -

    since each equation is a straight line, each has exactly one solution.

    Think on it. A solution is where the graph intersects the x-axis. Two distinct lines intersect in exactly one point, unless they are parallel.
