How do you solve this? 6(n  8) = 4(12  5n) + 14n I got 0 = 0 the first time, but I think I should have gotten n = 0. Just want to be sure. What do you get, and if you could, show your work. 6(n  8) = 4(12  5n) + 14n 6n + 48 = 48  20n + 14n {used distributive property} 6n + 48 = 48  6n {combined like terms} 6n = 6n {subtracted 48 from both sides} 0 = 0 When the variable disappears and you get a true statement, this means n could be any number, and there are "infinitely many solutions“.
