Determine whether the system of linear equations has one and only one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no solution.
3x − y = −3
6x − 2y = 8
a) one and only one solution
b) infinitely many solutions
c) no solution
can you please show the work

  1. double the 1st equation and you have

    6x-2y = -6

    It is clear to see that since -6 ≠ -8 the two equations cannot have a single solution. The lines are parallel, and do not intersect.
