# No Solution or Identity

### By: Forrest, Sam, Dani, and Anna

No Solution: this means that both sides of the equation are not equal and no number can replace the variable

Identity: an equation where the variable can be replaced by ANY number

When you can see that the equation either is exactly the same on both sides or the two sides of the equation do not equal each other; then you can determine that it is identity, or no solution.
