If you were solving a system of equations and you came to a statement like 1 = 3, what do you know about the solution to the system?
The solution is (1, 3).
The solution is x = 1 and y = 3.
There is no solution.
There are infinitely many solutions.

I think the answer is D or B am i right? If not explain please.

  1. clearly 1 = 3 is a false statement, so
    there is no solution

    (if your two equations are linear, you are looking at two parallel and distinct lines. They will never intersect, or
    "they will intersect when 1 = 3" , and when will that be ??
