Help, please? I'm confused. xD The graph of a system of equations will intersect at more than 1 point.

    If you're talking about linear equations, then they will only intersect more than once only if you have a dependent system. So this happens some of the time but not all the time. Ex: 2x+3y = 6 4x+6y = 12 is a dependent system that has an infinite number of intersections

    The lines 2x+3y = 6 and 4x+6y = 12 lie on top of one another (since they're the same line). So they intersect at an infinite number of points.

    That's just one example of a system that has more than one intersection
