    When you have the x values with the same value but the integers are different \[\large \sf \color{red}{5x}\color{blue}{+10}=\color{red}{5x} \color{blue}{-8}\] that means that the two lines produced will be parallel

    You know that parallel lines never meet right?

    Well the number of solutions is determined by the amount of times the two lines meet each other. So if they never meet, how many solutions will there be?
