    A. In 2 hours, because the solution to the system is (2,18). B. They will never have the same amount of water because the solution to the system is (–2,18). It is not possible to have time be –2 hours. C. In –2 hours, because the solution to the system is (–2,18). D. They will never have the same amount of water because the solution to the system is (–2,18). It is not possible to have –2 gallons in the tanks. A, B, C, or D? Please explain (:
