[6.01] You graph a system of equations and get two lines that are parallel. Explain what this tells you about the:
1.solution to the system
2.the two equations
3.the result if the system was solved algebraically

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There is a solution to the system if the lines cross each other. Do parallel lines ever cross each other?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Great so there is no solution for parallel lines. That is the answer for the first one.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes you are correct. So if you set up both equations in this form y=mx+b where m is the slope we will know that both equations will have the same m

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's for the second part. Not sure about the last. We also know that they don't have a solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We can try to solve it but we will not get an answer. It will end up something in the lines of 0=some number other than zero and we know that 0 can't equal a number so that means there is no solution.
