Two lines, C and D, are represented by the following equations:
Line C: y = x + 5
Line D: y = −2x − 1
Which of the following options shows the solution to the system of equations and explains why?
(−2, 3), because the point does not lie on any axis
(−2, 3), because both lines pass through this point
(−2, 3), because one of the lines passes through this point
(−2, 3), because the point lies between the two axes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1B. There is one solution to both of the equations and the one that matches both(in this case, 2, 3) is the point that they both intersect each other.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sure! Do you have anything about it specifically you don't understand or the overall concept?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, so if you have a set of equations, and the problem asks you to find the 'solution', that means that the want you to find at which point the lines intersect.dw:1433952549376:dw For this specific question, it's asking you to name the solution and why that number is correct. There are no other coordinates other than (2, 3), so all you figure out is WHY it is the answer. Since (2, 3) can only be the solution to BOTH equations only if it is the intersecting point, the answer is b.
