# What does one solution mean in math?

An equation may have zero, one, or more solutions (this is also true for a system of equations).

The equation 2 + x = 5 has only solution, for example. x can only equal 3, so there is one solution.

(An example of an equation with more that one solution is x2 = 4. In this case x can equal 2 or -2, so this equation has two solutions. An example of an equation with an infinite number of solutions is x + 6 = 3*2 + x. x can equal any number to make this equation true, so it has an infinite number of solutions. The equation x = x + 1 is an example of an equation with no solutions.)
