## Steeben 3 years ago How many solutions are there to the following system of equations? 5x + 3y = 7 2x – y = 2

1. Steeben

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

combine the like turms

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

what u ahev to plot them?

6. mud116

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.

8. Steeben

cause the main question is How many solutions are there to the following system of equations? a. 0 b. 1 c. 2 d. infinately many

9. mud116

can I give two pple medals?

A there r no solutions!

no just one :(

12. Austin_Rain

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.

I gave u the answer there are no solutions!!!!!!!!!!

14. Steeben

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.

15. mud116

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

16. Steeben

alright imma graph it

17. mud116

yes that will give you an ACCURATE answer

18. Steeben

ok its indefanitly many!

20. Austin_Rain

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

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

22. Steeben

yes they intercept once.

23. Austin_Rain

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

24. Austin_Rain

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

25. Austin_Rain

Stee, I am giving you a picture of the graph to help you. :)

26. Austin_Rain

Here you go!

27. Steeben

ahhh I see thanks!!!
