Day26, Possible Results in Solving an Equation
 When solving an equation, if you get (variable) = (constant) ex. y = -3 ex. x = 4 that's the solution.  (constant) = (constant) ex. 9 = 9 ex. 9 = 4 + 5 8 - 1 = 3 + 4 0 = 0 all numbers are solutions.   (constant) = (different constant) ex. 0 = 1 ex. 4 = 3 9 = -2 there are no solutions.

The other number when the sum of two numbers is ...
 The other number when the sum of two numbers is ...     Find:       The other number when x is one number and the sum of the two numbers is 15. (sum) = 15 (one number) + (other number) = 15 ```x + (other number) = 15 -x -x ____________________________________ (other number) = 15 - x``` The other number is 15 - x.
