Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok  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
