:/ Help.. Algebra is not easy for me.. Solve the system y = 2x + 6 and 3y = 6x + 18 by using graph paper or graphing technology. What is the solution to the system? (2, 6) (3, 6) No Solutions Infinite Solutions

    Divide the second equation by 3. You will see that both equations represent exactly the same thing. This means infinite solutions. Please note that (3,6) is not on this line at all. (3,12) is. Also (2,10)

    Please read again what I said. You should find the words "infinite solutions". This is the result of the two equations being identical.

    Please read again what I said. After dividing the second equation by 3, you will see that the two equations are identical. 3y = 6x + 18 Dividing by 3 y = 2x + 6 All the information you needed was in the original post. It is imperative that you learn to read with greater care.

    I did not say "learn to read". I said "learn to read with greater care". Words mean things. A careful examination will reveal much. A careless examination will be of little value.
