 Question 254580: sove..type ordered pair x+2y=5 (1) x=4-2y (2) i asked some people i knew if they could tell me what the (1) and (2) was for and they said its just the number of equations. But I think its goes in the equations. Not really sure how to do any of it. Hope you can help.Answer by Alan3354(30959)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!x+2y=5 x=4-2y --> x+2y=4 -------------------- x+2y can't equal both 4 and 5. --> inconsistent, no solution. If you graph them, you get 2 parallel lines, no intersection.
