You can put this solution on YOUR website!
Since the second equation is stated in the form "x= ____", I would recommend the substitution method. Substitute what x= in the second equation, back into the first equation:
(_____) +2y = 7
A funny thing happens here!! All the variables subtract out, and you are left with 8=7. This is NOT POSSIBLE, so there is NO SOLUTION. Actually, the two given straight lines are PARALLEL LINES.
