Solve the system 3x – 2y = 7 and 9x – 6y = 3 What is the solution to the system?
If you divide the second equation throughout by 3 we get 3x - 2y = 1 Now, is that consistent with the first equation, 3x - 2y = 7 ?
No. Because the second equation implies 3x - 2y = 1 But the first equation is 3x - 2y = 7 If both equations where true, then that would imply that 7 = 1 which cannot be true!! We say that this system of equations is inconsistent, which means it leads to nonsense. Hence there are no solutions to both equations.
YES!! Thank you for explaining
