Can -you- answere it?
I can.

well, x = "nothing" but the answer to the equation could be "26" or "-7=19".
not possible to solve.

first get the variables all on one side if i remember right, but you subtract x from one side and then the other, there is no more X, just -7=19, or you could do that later and add 7 to both sides which leaves you with "x=26+x", then subtract an x from both sides then that leaves you with the answer 26, but not x=26 because of the fact X no longer lives in this equation.

Soo, where is my cookie?

Yes there is.
What is the value of X?

this is what i come up with:

Simplifying
x + -7 = x + 19

Reorder the terms:
-7 + x = x + 19

Reorder the terms:
-7 + x = 19 + x

Add '-1x' to each side of the equation.
-7 + x + -1x = 19 + x + -1x

Combine like terms: x + -1x = 0
-7 + 0 = 19 + x + -1x
-7 = 19 + x + -1x

Combine like terms: x + -1x = 0
-7 = 19 + 0
-7 = 19

Solving
-7 = 19

The left and right sides are not equal, therefore there is no solution.

Yes both sides ARE equal.
The statement SAYS they are.
The question is therefore ...what is the value of X.

Like most people your just trying too hard and are over looking the simple way to solve the problem while the answere is right in front of you with neon lights pointing it out...so to speak.
I see people do this all the time when trying to make a cheat work or bypass an anti-cheat system.
Just stop thinking so hard.
The answere is -very- simple!

With a -simple- puzzle like this those schooled in "higher" ways of working things out almost always fail becuase they are trying to use everything they have been taught to figuare it out.

That is the wrong way to think.

It is like training for self protection...follow the basics and the body does without the mind stopping to think about it.

Relax your mind and let it go back to the basics.
Put yourself back on autopilot (yes I flew aircraft and have a licence...still).

The equation is simplified into x^2 = 26. So x = the square root of 26. Which cannot be simplified any and according to google calculator is 5.09901951.

Edit i just realized that's a positive X, not negative. Ha ha, guess i'm stupid too  :icon_laugh
So all that i just typed is wrong... :icon_rolleyes2

I wonder how long I should let people work on this befor I tell them what "X" is?

How long did it took before you found it?

As soon as I saw it.
It is the only possible way for the statment to be correct and it is not a natural number.

i get it, x = Y

or X just =x and leave it at that.

It is soooooooo simple.
If "X" can have natural number added/subtracted and still remain equal...then the same -will- hold true if you divied/multiply...therefor "X" can -only- be one thing in math.

I hated math in school and the reason I last did programming back in 1984 was becuase at the time it was almost pure math and ATARI BASIC had just came out that made it easyer.
You C* guys have it easy.
