(x + 12) = (x + 14) - 3
subtract 12 from each side
x = x + 14 - 3 - 12
Now if we subtract x from each side we see that x - x = 0. Combine the terms left over and we have -1, so
0 = -1
The answer is NO SOLUTION

remember you can do anything to an equation as long as yo do it to both sides
(x+12)=(x+14)-3
x+12=x+14-3
x+12=x+11
minus x both sides
12=11
false
no value works
