please solve

x+5y=10
-2x-10y=-20

Since the second equation can be obtained from the first (by multiplying both sides by -2), they are not independent and there is no unique solution. There are an infinite number of x,y combinations that are solutions.

    Solve the system 9x-5y=119 18x-10y=238 Double both sides of the first equation and you have 18x-10y =238 which is the same as the second equation. Since the two equations are not independent, there are no unique solutions. Thee
