2. 5(x – 9) = 5x
5x - 45 = 5x
-45 = 0

If your variables drop out and you end up with a true statement, such as 4 = 4, there will be an infinite number of solutions.
If your variables drop out and you end up with a false statement, such as our -45 = 0, there will be no solution.

-2(x-10 = 2x - 2
-2x + 20 = 2x - 2
-4x = -22
x = 11/2, so ... one solution.
