Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there is few ways of working this out. Elimination, Substitution and maybe multiplication

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ill use substitution then :P x = \[x = y  \frac{ 1 }{ 5 }\] 25x + ky = 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1times the first equation by 5 25x  25y = 5 25x + ky = 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now add this equation vertically together. it would give you k=25

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i probably shoulda phrased the question the way they have it on my hw. it says: Determine the value of k for which the system of linear equations has no solutions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you know why there is no solution? if you sub K = 25 it wont work

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh u said this one wants the k to have an infinite amount of solutions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01 K but infinite solutions we need the K

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y(7 + k ) = 0 from this can you find K? im pretty sure you can :P
