105. DISCUSS: A Family of Equations The equation 3x + k – 5 = kx – k + 1 is really a family of equations, because for each value of k, we get a different equation with the unknown x. The letter k is called a parameter for this family. What value should we pick for k to make the given value of x a solution of the resulting equation? (a) x = 0 (b) x = 1 (c) x = 2

Question

DISCUSS: A Family of Equations The equation
3x  k  5  kx  k  1
is really a family of equations, because for each value of k,
we get a different equation with the unknown x. The letter k
is called a parameter for this family. What value should we
pick for k to make the given value of x a solution of the
resulting equation?
(a) x  0 (b) x  1 (c) x  2
