Solve by elimination method
3x  6y =4
3x  6y =5
is the answer x=9
and I think it is inconsistant and not consistant

Christy, I see 2 things wrong:
If you solved these equations,
you would get 0=1 which is a false
statement. also the slope of each
equation =A/B=3/6=1/2. So the equations have equal slopes and do not
intersect. Therefore,there is no solution. 
thank you, yes I was lost.
