id set them both equal to y then solve like that

ar you can sub y=1/3x+2 in to other equation x+3(1/3 x+x)=3 solve for x

yummydum Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
since y equals 1/3x+2 we can substitute that into the second equation like this:\[x+3(1/3 x+2)=3\]and then solve for x:\[x3x+6=3\]\[2x+6=3\]\[2x=3\]\[x=3/2\] now substitute this x into the first equation:\[y=1/3(3/2)+2\]\[y=1/2+2\]\[y=5/2\] \[{x=3/2~~~~~~~~y=5/2}\]

okay I see the first part. but the problem with 5/2, is that thats not one of the answer options. but 3/2, 0 is

oh sorry 1 second

yummydum Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
\[x+3(−1/3x+2)=3\] and then solve for x: \[x−x+6=3\]\[0x+6=3\]\[0x=−3\]\[x=0\] now substitute this x into the first equation: \[y=−1/3(0)+2\]\[y=0+2\]\[y=2\] \[x=0~~~y=2\]

is that one of the choices? sorry i did that wrong but i fixed it...helpful? :)

(0, 1) (1, 0) (3, 1/3) (3/2, 0) these are the options.

im so confused ..

y has to equal 1 when x is 0

yummydum, if 0x=−3, then 0 = 3 which is a contradiction So there are no solutions.

besides the mistake then you .. wait if you have choses then the order pair are (x,y) sub into the equations example take the first one 0,1 y= 1/3 + 2 and x + 3y = 3 1=1/3(0)+2 and 0+3(1)=3 1=2 not a solutation and 3=3 solves right equations so do the next set of pairs and tell me what you find out

damn im confused...

is that all the possiablities? there is no solutions be these are parallal lines

sorry your confused but it says solve so look at what we have sub the points in the equations and see if it equals or solve for x or y and then find what you did nt solve for... do you understand this
 2 years ago

trentsellars Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
there is a no solution

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i would be confused too...the answer choices are incorrect because the true answer is "no solution" or "there is/are no solution(s)"
 2 years ago

jim_thompson5910 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so there must be a typo somewhere

kmalone99 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
there is your answer but do you understand why?

i think i got this jim_thompson5910

trentsellars Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yeah i do thanks :)

kmalone99 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
great you also can see let equations equal 1/3 x+2=1/3 x+1and solve for x then you get 2=1 so no solution. :)

phi Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
another way to look at \[y= \frac{1}{3}x + 2 \text { and } x + 3y = 3\] the 2nd equation, after rearranging into y= mx+b form is \[ y= \frac{1}{3}x+3\] You have two lines that are parallel, and never meet. There is no (x,y) pair that is on both lines (as would be the case if they intersected)
