y= 1/2 x +14

2y-x = 44         Hint:   these are equations of lines that do not cross....so no solution set

                take it away !

3. \(\begin{cases} 2x + y= 1\\2x+y = 5\end{cases}\)

Substituting equation 1 into equation 2, we get 5 = 1, which means no solution.

 

4. \(\begin{cases}2x + y = 1\\4x+2y = 2\end{cases}\)

Substituting equation 1 into equation 2, we get 2 = 2 which is always true. Therefore, any pair of (x, y) satisfies this equation and thus it has infinite solutions.
