# What equation that has variables on each side and has a solution of -2?

###### Wiki User

There are an infinite number of such equations.

Here's one of them:

2x + 6 = -x

(Since the solution is only 1 number, the

equation can only have 1 variable.)

2x + 4 = 8Subtract 4 from each side of the equation:2x = 4Divide each side by 2:x = 2

Manipulate the equation to get all the variables on one side of the equal sign, and the numbers on the other side; then solve. For example, 2x = 10, divide both sides by 2, then the solution is x = 5.

4 (t + 3) = 20Eliminate parentheses on the left side:4t + 12 = 20Subtract 12 from each side of the equation:4t = 8Now divide each side of the equation by 4,and you have the solution.==================================Another way to approach it:4 (t + 3) = 20Divide each side of the equation by 4 :t + 3 = 5Now subtract 3 from each side,and you have the solution.This approach seems easier.

It's a linear equation in 'x'. The 'solution' of the equation is the number that 'x'must be in order to make it a true statement. A linear equation has exactly onesolution. You can find it like this:-7x - 6 = 29Add 6 to each side:-7x = 35Divide each side by -7 :x = -5

It's a first-degree equation in 'b' . To solve the equation in two steps: 1). Subtract 26.8 from each side of the equation. 2). Divide each side of the equation by 4.6 . 3). If your solution is not [ b = 5.2 ], go back to Step-1 and repeat until you do it correctly.

An equation can have zero solutions, one solution, two solutions, or many solutions. A solution is any number that, when replaced into the equation, will give an equality. An example of an equation without a solution is x = x + 1. No matter what number you use for "x", the right part will always be one more than the left part. Therefore, the equation has no solution. (Also, if you subtract "x" from each side, you get the equation 0 = 1, which is obviously false.)
