Determine whether the following statement is sometimes, always, or never true: equations like π plus 10 equals 11 and 16 minus π equals three have only one solution.

Letβs look closely at these two equations: π plus 10 equals 11 and 16 minus π equals three. Here weβre dealing with addition and subtraction. The key here is that our variables are taken to the first power. We donβt have anything squared.

We donβt have any form of absolute value. And that means that there is only one solution for both π and π. In equations like this, we often called them one-step equations. The equations will only have one solution. This statement is always true.
