Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so starting off in a general form, do you know how or what ways you can solve a system of equations?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok well there are a few ways, two common ones. Let's skip that though, for now. What do you know about a line? Let's say y=mx+b.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. Well I don't want to give like a whole lesson, but y=mx+b is the equation of a line. With m being the slope and b being a yintercept on a graph. Anyway, for a system to have a solution, there first has to be two different equations. If you rearrange and maybe simplify those two equations are they different?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0More specifically, the equations don't need to be different to have a solution. They need to be different to have a set solution...
