Write an equation with a variable on both sides of the equal sign that has infinitely many solutions. Solve the equation and explain why it has an infinite number of solutions.

Okay so that is the question, I know it's already on Jiskha but I need it to be explained more. How would I know that a equation has infinite solutions.

There is something about x=x but I don't get what that means.

  1. Okay, let first say that my dad helped me after this and I got it right, it would be X=Y. And it would have infinite number of solutions because x and y could be anything!! Like x could be 10 and y could be 9, like they could be anything. Also it just means the same thing as saying x=y but y becomes an x. I hope this helps, I’m terrible at math and explaining math
