When solving an equation, the first step is to move the variable terms to the same side.
The first step in solving $2x+1=2x-1$ would then be to subtract 2x on both sides:
$2x+1=2x-1$
$2x+1-2x=2x-1-2x$
$1=-1$
Notice that all the variable terms canceled. When you solve an equation, if the variable terms cancel and you are left with a false statement, then the equation has no solution. If the variable terms cancel and you are left with a true statement, then the solutions of the equation are all real values of x.
Since 1=−1 is false statement, then the equation $2x+1=2x-1$ has no solution.
