Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Rewrite 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 \[c=\frac{4}{3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and why would that have an infinite # of solutions?

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yaa ... i also agree with @Zarkon don't you @mathslover

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0isn't like this \[3x4y=7\] \[3x=74y\] \[xy=\frac{7}{12}\] \[x=\frac{7}{12}+y\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5What 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 .

mathslover

Best 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.53x4y = 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

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

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

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