It is a linear equation because the highest power in the equation is 1.
This is how you solve it:
x+x=x
x+x-x= x-x (you are doing the same thing to both sides of the equation so it stays the same)
x=0
Thus the only solution to the equation is x=0.

i dont think so... infinite isnt really a number so to speak, it is the idea of endlessness

–
x+1-x=x-x, so
1 =0
This is false so the equation has no solution.
Note that infinity is not a real number so it isnt a solution.

Can the solution not be infinite?I mean x=infinite.Log in to reply

What do you think about? x+1=x? :)Log in to reply
