Lesson Summary

Student Outcomes for Lesson 7

Student Outcomes

1. Students know the conditions for which a linear equation will have a unique solution, no solution, or infinitely many solutions.

Lesson Questions / Review

- We know that equations will either have a unique solution, no solution, or infinitely many solutions.

- We know that equations with no solution will, after being simplified on both sides, have coefficients of  that are the same on both sides of the equal sign and constants that are different.

- We know that equations with infinitely many solutions will, after being simplified on both sides, have coefficients x of  and constants that are the same on both sides of the equal sign.
