Systems of equations with different slopes and different y-intercepts have more than one solution. Always Sometimes Never

OpenStudy (turingtest):

Never

OpenStudy (anonymous):

If the slopes are constant (i.e. the equations are both linear), then they can only have one.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Different slopes for two lines means the two lines must meet at some point and that means the two lines have one solution.

OpenStudy (turingtest):

|dw:1319656802719:dw|so only one solution is possible

OpenStudy (anonymous):

A solution to a system of equations (two lines) is where the two lines meet (single point). Not all lines can meet - for example parallel lines.

OpenStudy (turingtest):

But that would require them to have the same slope
