Please help. I have been trying to figure this problem out for an hour now.
Solve the following system of equations.
X + 8y = 5 (1)
x=88y (2)

Algebra.. please help  bobpursley, Sunday, January 31, 2010 at 6:26pm
put the second in standard format.
x+8y=8
but the first is
x+8y=5
so the equations are not independent, they are in fact parallel lines, and have no solution where they cross.

that is
x + 8 y = 5
and
x + 8 y = 8
These are two parallel lines which never intersect, no solution possible.
