multiply first equation by 2

-30r+24s=48

+30r-24s=48

hmm, if I add those, I get 0 = 96. a problem all right

try multiplying the second one by -1 then look

-30r+24s=48

-30r+24s=-48

that is two parallel lines with the same slope but they never cross (different intercepts). There are no solutions.
