 Solved by pluggable solver: Solve the System of Equations by Graphing Start with the given system of equations: In order to graph these equations, we need to solve for y for each equation. So let's solve for y on the first equation Start with the given equation Subtract from both sides Rearrange the equation Divide both sides by Break up the fraction Reduce Now lets graph (note: if you need help with graphing, check out this solver) Graph of So let's solve for y on the second equation Start with the given equation Subtract from both sides Rearrange the equation Divide both sides by Break up the fraction Reduce Now lets add the graph of to our first plot to get: Graph of (red) and (green) From the graph, we can see that the two lines are parallel and will never intersect. So there are no solutions and the system is inconsistent.

Hi,
finding the solution for the following linear system.
5x+5y=-1  Green
y=-x      Blue

5x + 5(-x) = -1
0 ≠ -1  There is NO solution for this system of equations
