The table below shows two equations:

Equation 1 |3x - 1| + 7 = 2
Equation 2 |2x + 1| + 4 = 3

Which statement is true about the solution to the two equations?

Equation 1 and equation 2 have no solutions.

Equation 1 has no solution and equation 2 has solutions x = 0, 1.

The solutions to equation 1 are x = -1.3, 2 and equation 2 has no solution.

The solutions to equation 1 are x = -1.3, 2 and equation 2 has solutions x = 0, 1

1. equation #1:
|3x-1| + 7 = 2
|3x-1| = -5
but by definition, the |anything| cannot be negative,
the same is true for the 2nd equation.

So neither one has a solution
