solve for x
x-3(x-1)=6x-3-8x
a) infinite solutions
b)no solution
c)0
d)-1
(x-3)(x-1)=-2x-3
so I believe from the information given the answer would be b) no solution.
Is this correct?

1. correct

but, (x-3)(x-1)=-2x-3 is not the same equation.

2. Why is it not the same
I 6x-8x=-2x
so that is how I got
(x-3)(x-1)=-2x-3
but both ways are no solution.
Thanks for checking my work
