##### 1 Answer

This is actually a bit of a trick question since the two equations are equivalent.

If you solve

In a case like this, where you have more variables than equations (there are 2 variables- **infinitely many solutions**. You can keep plugging in infinitely many values for

Notice that **net** equation, In that net equation, you can have any value for
