Dividing both sides of the second equation by 2, we get

This is the same equation as the first one. It means that there are **INFINITE solutions** for

Any values of x and y that satisfy the first equation will also satisfy the second one.

For eg. if we choose x = 2, y = 0:

First equation :

Second equation :

Left Hand Side is

And the Right Hand Side is

Both the equations will be satisfied for various such values of
