solve the systems of equations
{4/7x+y=2/7
1/8x3/4y=11/4
a. the solution of the system is
b. there are infinitely many solutions
c. there is no solution

Multiply both sides of first equation by 7.
4x + 7y = 2
Multiply both sides of second equation by 8.
x  6y = 22
To get x terms equal, multiply both sides by 4.
4x  24y = 88
Add first and third equation.
17y = 86
Solve for y and then for x.
