How do you solve this equation?

3 + 6z = 13 + 6z

3 + 6z = 13 + 6z

6z = 10 + 6z {subtracted 3 from both sides}

0 = 10 {subtracted 6z from both sides}

=

**no solution**

If the variable disappears and you get a false statement, then there is no solution.

If the variable disappears and you get a true statement, then there are infinite solutions.
