For what number A does the equation 3Ax-24=5x-9+x have no solution for x?

\(3Ax - 24 = 5x - 9 + x\)        simplify the right side

 

\(3Ax - 24  =  6x - 9\)

 

This will have no solution when    \(3A  = 6  \Rightarrow   A   = 2\)

 

To see why this is so....

 

\(3(2)x   - 24   =   6x - 24\)    and this can never equal  \(6x - 9\)
