  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.
