Students complete this one student page, high interest activity by placing the digits 0-9 into the boxes in the equations so that the solution would be "no solution." Critical thinking is necessary for students to realize what digit must go in each box so that the equation will have no solution.
Students must then show their work by solving the multi-step equations (distributive property and combining like terms also included) to prove that each equation has no solution.
