CHECK MY WORK!
How many solutions will this system of equations have?
y = −3.5x − 3.5
y = −3.5x + 3.5
No solution<<<<<parallel !?
Infinite solutions
One solution
Two solutions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Like, it's the exact same problem. I couldn't find it but I'll still help you out lol So you can use substitution in this one. Try and isolate x in the first equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03y and 1 are not like terms.. So it's just x = 3y 1. Now, plug that isolated x into the second equation. 2x + 2y = 6 2(3y  1) + 2y = 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have to distribute 2*(3y  1) before adding +2y.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The equation turns into 2 6y + 2y = 6. You multiply 2 by 3y and 1.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y = 2. Plug it in with the first equation to figure out the value of x.
