If you try to solve a linear system by the substitution method and get the result 0 = 8, what does this mean?

A. The system has one solution, (0,8).
B.The system has one solution, (8,0).
C.The system has no solutions.
D.The system has an infinite number of solutions.

I think it's C but i'm not sure. Am i right?

  2. since 0=8 is not true for any values of x and y, that means there is no solution to the system. The lines are parallel, and do not intersect.
