Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If \[\Large{\dfrac{a_1}{a_2}=\dfrac{b_1}{b_2}=\dfrac{c_1}{c_2}}\] Then it has INFINITELY MANY solutions. \[\Large{\dfrac{a_1}{a_2}=\dfrac{b_1}{b_2}\neq\dfrac{c_1}{c_2}}\] Then it has NO solutions. \[\Large{\dfrac{a_1}{a_2}\neq\dfrac{b_1}{b_2}}\] Then it has only ONE solution.
