    2[3-(5-5x)] - x = -10 + 3(2 + 3x)
    2[3-5+5x] - x = -10 + 6 + 9x
    2[-2+5x] - x = -4 + 9x
    -4 + 10x - x = -4 + 9x
    0 = 0

    If that happens, your original equation is an identity, and is true for all values of x
    If the variable drops away and you end up with a true statement, it is true for all values of x (like yours)
    If the variable drops away and you end up with a false statement, the equation has no solution.
    e.g. 3x + 5 = 3x = 6
    5 = 6, false!! Thus no value of x is that ever going to make a true statement
