    in the end, I solved for y and then y = 2x-2, then I plugged it in the other one and x turns out to be equal to 0.18181818818818188 AND I'M LIKE WHATTTT

    LOL, No. You don't solve them. Plot them on a graph.

    yuppers both are correct once you combine like terms that is as far as you go

    1, Discriminant = 49 - (4*5*3) = -11 2, nemaproblema: x² - 7/5x = -3/5 (x - 7/10)² - 0.49 = -0.6 (x - 7/10)² = -0.11 Both indicates there is no solution.

    Put the system into slope intercept form. and plot it on the graph. You can see how many solutions there are from how many times they intercept.

    brianna I know where you got that answer but it's not. I looked it up too but they don't have the same question.

    this is true you got an infinite number which usually means that there is no true answer!

    There is only 1 solution. Meaning the two lines only intercept once.

    but when u graph they can only intercept one or non times!

    False, they can intercept infinite, zero, or one time.

    Infinite = Same Line Zero = Parallel Lines One = Criss Cross Lines.
