- In the equation 0
*x*= 0, all values of*x*are solutions or roots of the equation. - The equation a
*x*+ b = o, where a ≠ 0, has only one root, that is*x*= – \(\frac{\textrm{b}}{\textrm{a}}\).

### Examples

- The solution set of the equation 3
*x*+ 4 = 7 is {1}. - The two roots of the equation
*x*^{2}– 3*x*+ 2 = 0 are*x*\(_{1}\) = 2 and*x*\(_{2}\) = 1.
