Solving

OpenStudy (anonymous):

there is no solution to this.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

OK thanks

OpenStudy (anonymous):

you are welcome

OpenStudy (anonymous):

you get -5 = 7 which is silly, hence this system of equations doesnt have a solution. notice that the slopes of the two lines are the same. this means they are parallel. this means they have no point of intersection and hence no solution
