Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The 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.
