Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[6x+2y=10\]\[6x2y=12\]add these two equations together. If you get a statement that is always true then there are infinitely many solutions. If you get a statement that is never true then there are no solutions. If you can solve for x and/or y then there is one solution. What do you get by adding these together?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The slopes are the same and the y intercepts are different so the lines are parallel and there is no solution.
