ow many solutions does a system of two linear equations have if the slope of each equation is the same, but the y-intercepts are different? infinitely many none one none of the above

If two equations have the same slope, that means they are parallel. And do parallel lines ever intersect each other?

infinately

Yea. So how many solutions would there be?

It's not infinite. That only works if they're the same line but they're not. They have different y-intercept. They are parallel lines

The slopes are the same, so either they are the same line or they are parallel lines. They have difference y intercepts so they are not the same line. Since they are parallel lines there are no solutions because parallel lines don't intersect.
