Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Part 1: the solutions don't exist, or equivalently the system is inconsistent. For part two, I would use a matrix method to encode the coefficients and rowreduce it, but because I don't want to write it out in this text format, we will just use elimination: subtract equation two from equation one: \[5y = 5 \Longrightarrow y=1\] Sub y=1 into either equation to get: \[x=12\]
