Re: solving for x

Isn't 2 an answer? I mean, I plug in 2 into both sides of the eqn and I get 2=2, which I know is true. Since the value x=2 leads to a statement that is true (i.e. 2=2), it must also be a solution. So x=2 works.
No wait, isn't 3 an answer? I put 3 into both sides of the equation and it also seems to work?
Isn't 4 an answer?
Isn't 5?
Isn't Pi?
Dang, I can't sem to find a value for x that doesn't work. Can you?
