two systems of equations are giving below for each system choosethe best description of its solution if applicable give solution
x+4y=8
x4y= 8
choose which one this problem fit in
1)the system has no solution
2) the system has a unique solution (x,y)=
or the system has a infinitely many solutions they must satisfy the following equation: y=

x = 8  4y
8  4y  4y = 8
8y = 16
y = 2
x4y= 8
x 8 = 8

for some reason when I am adding the two equations, I am getting 0 = 0. This is a true statement which means that there is an infinite number of solutions. Any x,y pair that works in one will work in the other.

You're right, Dr. Jane. I hadn't intended to post my answer  but I guess my finger slipped.
