X + 8y = 5 (1)

**bobpursley**, Sunday, January 31, 2010 at 6:26pmput 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.

x + 8 y = 5

and

x + 8 y = 8

These are two parallel lines which never intersect, no solution possible.
