It is possible for a system of equations to have no solution.

**Anna**, Saturday, January 9, 2010 at 4:20pmI am gathering there is no solution because in the second equation it would not be 2 it would be -2...am I right?

You can rearrange the equations to get

x + 3y = 8

x + 3y = 4

In that form, there is obviously no solution.
