i think there is easier way out....

Rewrite first equation \[x\frac{4}{3}y=7\] for no solution we need to have parallel lines second equation \[x+cy=13\] compare this with the first \[c=\frac{4}{3}\]

no solution is of the form: ax+b=c ax+b=d

and why would that have an infinite # of solutions?

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
because ax+b=c and ax+b=c are satisfied by infinite number of points (x,y) simultaneously.

3x4y=7 and x+cy=13 \[x\frac{4}{3}y=\frac{7}{3}\] \[x+cy=13\]

yaa ... i also agree with @Zarkon don't you @mathslover

Zarkon Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
if c=4/3 then you get \[x\frac{4}{3}y=\frac{7}{3}\] and \[x\frac{4}{3}y=13\] ie \[\frac{7}{3}=13\]

Zarkon Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
thus no solution

isn't like this \[3x4y=7\] \[3x=74y\] \[xy=\frac{7}{12}\] \[x=\frac{7}{12}+y\]

and then solve it

mathslover Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5
What I did is this : \[\large{7+4y = 3(13cy)}\] \[\large{7+4y=393cy}\] \[\large{32= 4y+3cy}\] We have to find the value of c when the RHS becomes zero which will give no solution. \[\large{4y+3(c)(y)=0}\] \[\large{c = \frac{4y}{3y}}\] \[\large{c=\frac{4}{3}}\] hence at c = 4/3 we get no solutions for the variables in the given two equations .

@mayankdevnani what r u doing?
 one year ago

mathslover Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5
@mayankdevnani you need to concentrate hardly on understanding questions... You are solving for x or y but in the question we have to find the value for c which makes the solutions for the equation as null set.

@mathslover how did you get it \[7+4y=1(13cy)\]

mathslover Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5
3x4y = 7 x = (7+4y) / 3 and then : x + cy = 13 x = 13cy 13cy = (7+4y)/3 (since they are equal to x) 3(13cy) = 7+4y

got it @mayankdevnani ?

ghazi Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
just put 4/3 at C and you will have a parallel set of line and parallel set of lines have no solution

3x4y=7 and 3x4y=39 are parallel lines how could they have a solution ..they intersect nowhere

neither do they overlap

Isnt your method same as @ash2326 's method........ @ghazi

ghazi Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
i didn't see ...i just came here read the question and identified these are parallel lines...i guess yes both have same solution and we don't need to solve anything because already it is visible that it's case of parallel line when c= 4/3 hence no solution

ghazi Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes it is similar to that of @ash2326
