In solving the system -4x + 6y = -1 and -x + 1.5y = 0, Sue arrived at the equation 0 = -1 . Assuming Sue did not make a mistake, that means the system has: a. (0, -1) as its only solution b. infinitely many solutions c. no solution d. (-1, 0) as its only solution e. has (0, -1) and (-1, 0) as its only solutions

    if solving equations and your variables drop out and you get a true statement I.E 0=0, then you get infinite solutions.

    if you are solving the equation and the variables drop out and you get a false statement, I.E 1=2, then you have no solutions.
