Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would plot the two lines by locating their two respective intercepts by letting x=0 then y=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Luis They don't even have the same slope. How could they be the same line and have infinitely many solutions?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03x2y=6 when x=0, y=3 (0,3) when y=0 x=2(2,0) 5x+3y=9, when x=0, y=3 (0,3) when y=0, x=9/5) Now draw each line using the two points for each respective line. If and where the lines intersect, that will be the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@ Luis Well, they are not parallel but even if they were, there would be NO solution not infinitely many.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@ Luis The slope of the first one is 3/2. The slope of the second is 5/3 so they are clearly not parallel.
