If \[\Large{\dfrac{a_1}{a_2}=\dfrac{b_1}{b_2}=\dfrac{c_1}{c_2}}\] 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.

Here, \[\Large{\color{red}{a_1=3, a_2=\dfrac{1}{4}, b_1=12, b_2=1, c_1=20, c_2=\dfrac{5}{3}.}}\]
