Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Bleh. sorry. \[y = 2x 5 \text{ is the first line}\] \[y = 2x  18 \text{ is the second line}\] They have the same slope (2) but are not the same line. Therefore they have no solutions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't think there's a solution... if you double the first equation and add it to the second, you get: 4x + 4x 2y + 2x = 1018 And 8 is not 0...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0err. y=2x9 is the second line. But still not the same line and are parallel therefore no solutions.
