confused on this one because if i multiply the first equation by 2, it cancels out both the x and y components.
Solve by the elimination method.
2x + 3y =1
4x + 6y = 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is okay but you need to multiply first equation by 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry about that...you will get 0=0 which is always true so infinitely many or all real numbers as solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, that is the first time i saw the answer come out like that, thanks!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you're welcome....good job on elimination...you may also get something like 2=0 which is never true so NO SOLUTION

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so which would it be, infinitely many solutions or no solution?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no solution is a different typewhen left side doesn't equal right side INFINETLY MANY/ALL real numbers mean same things

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the answer i get when multiplying by 2 is 0=2. so I'm guessing that the answer is there is no solution. but how do i perform a check to make sure that my answer is right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It is unsolvable,it is an identity, it is the same equation just one is double the other you need two distinct equations for the two unknowns.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, so there is no solution, thx!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ms elegant do you understand even though they provided you with two equations, they are actually the same, one does not provide any new information for you.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for that problem the answer is all real numbers, infinitely many (identity) because 0=0 2(2x+3y=1)____4y6y=2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok i think i got it, there is a solution, but it is just an infinite amount of solutions that can be the answer, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0YES...bc every number equals itself

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, x=0 and y=1/3 could be a solution, but there is no specific solution, I could put down another solution like x=2, y=1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, i get it. and that's the check, that several answers fit this equation  so there are infinite solutions, not just one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is what it seems to be.
