If the system has no solution or an infinite number of solutions, state this. -x + 2y = 8 -x + 10y = 48 Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15652)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!-x + 2y = 8 -x + 10y = 48 ----------------subtraction eliminates x 0 - 8y = -40 y = y = +5 : Find x using the 1st equation, replace y with 5 -x + 2(5) = 8 -x + 10 = 8 -x = 8 - 10 -x = -2 x = +2 : See if that check out in the 2nd equation, replace x and y -2 + 10(5) = 48 -2 + 50 = 48; confirms our solutions
