See explanation below: I do not believe this equation can be solved.


I'll just work through the steps in order, explaining what I'm doing at each step:


Expand the brackets:


Collect like terms: the constants (terms without x in them) cancel out:


This is a problem, because we now have only terms in x, no constant terms to equate them to.

I don't believe this equation can be solved to find a value for x.
