Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first equation\[5x4y=11\]\[4y=5x11\]\[y=5/4x11/4\] second equation \[4y=5x9\]\[y=5/4x=9/4\] looking at the general forms of these equations we can see that they have the same slope and different intercepts, this means the lines are parallel and thus there is no solution
