Here's the answer to this one, shania....

9x+3y=0

-36x-12y=0

This set of equations wiill have infinite answers because they are actually the same........multiply the top equation by -4 and we have -36x - 12y = 0 ......which is just the second equation in disguise.....

[ BTW,,,if you take Linear Algebra, you will discover that the determinant of this system = 0 ....which means that we would quickly be able to see that it has either infinite solutions, or no solutions, dependening upon the right hand side ]
