    what does it mean when a systems of equations have infinite solutions?

    it means that any value replaced for a variable would make the equation true

    That's like have lines on top of themselves I guess would be a good way to explain |dw:1436396556807:dw| they would all be on top of each other, just differentiate it a bit so you can see, infinite points, infinite solutions, it would be a true statement such as 0 = 0

    if you have 2 equations and you graph them and they are on top of each other, they have infinite solutions

    so like x and y can be any number?

    this means infinite solutions.

    Yes 5 = 5 means infinite

    1 = 4 means no solution

    makes no sense

    infinite solutions mean i can put any number for x and y? x=4y+1

    If you have two, yes you can put what ever you like and it will give you the same result as in 5 = 5, 100 = 100
