Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1rewrite as: x+3y=2, x=63y y=2/3x/3 and y=2x/3 The slope is the same (because the value before the x is 1/3 in both equations) Therefore the lines are parallel

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Or substitute the second equation into the first: 63y+3y=2 6=2 Which makes it invalid Which makes there be no solution
