Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Use substituion we already know the value of y right? Plug E1 into E2 2x+5= –2x + 20 solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so is it like this 2(2)+5 = _2(2)+20

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well you cant solve the equation :) Add 2x to both sides. −2x+5+2x=−2x+20+2x 5=20 Subtract 5 from both sides. 5−5=20−5 0=15

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok when you have m=m <meaning 2 of the SAME numbers equaling each other it means that there are infinite solutions m=1 <one solutions m=n <No solutions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2in this case once we solve \[\huge~\rm~2x+5= –2x + 20 \] We get 0=15 therefore there are no solutions to this system of equations
