perhaps multiply equation 2 by a factor of 2 and see what you get

what's up? the ceiling, then clouds, then the stratophere

these are parallel lines

I'd say, solve each equation for "y" so you can see their slope same slopes, no solutions since they're parallel different slopes, one solution

@MrNood and @jdoe0001 its 2x+6y=4?

we would clearly see the troposphere before the stratosphere..hahaa

@chris00 and after that, some asteroids floating about, make sure you wear a helmet there though :P

ok - that's correct so if you look at the first equation 2x + 6y=5 and your equivalent to the seconf 2x+6y=4 then you can see that they cannot BOTH be true for the same values of x and y therefore there is no solution to th e'system' the lines do not intersect
