Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In both equations, when solving for y,I got y=4x4 Does that mean they have no solution, or one unique solution?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2wrong answer....do what igreen says...it will eventually make sense to you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oh..I see what you did LittleBird...you see that both equations are equal...they are the same. That means they are the same line......infinite solutions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have another similar problem where the lines are parallel. Does that mean they have no solution?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Little lesson.. (when finding out how many solutions a system of equations have) In y = mx + b form, the slope is in the m position and the y intercept is in the b position. (when comparing a system of equations).. If the slope and the y intercepts are equal, then it has infinite solutions if the slope is the same, but the y intercepts are different...parallel lines with no solutions. if the slopes and the y intercepts are different, then it has 1 solution
