If possible, solve each system of equations. Use any method. If there is not a unique solution to a system , state a reason.
3x11y=9
9x + 33y =18
Need the steps please.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok let's use elimination first 3x11y=9 x3 > 9x33y=27 9x + 33y =18 do addition, 9x9x33y+33y=27+18 0=45 both x and y are eliminated, so the system doesn't have solutions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no unique solution as both variables are eliminated ie one equation is a product/multiple of the other not a true system

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now we'll do substitution 3x11y=9 3x= 9+11y x=3 + 11/3y 9x + 33y =18 9(3 + 11/3 y) + 33y = 18 18 33y+33y = 18 we can't find y, so we also can't find x this prove that the system doesnt have solution
