A number that makes an equation true is a solution.

If there is more than one answer to an equation (such as an equation like):

(x-2)(x+4)=0

then it is called a solution set (and in this case would be x={-4, 2}).

Thus always check your answers after resolving your equation, and eliminate as solution the answers that don't make the equation true or undefined.
