The equations have no solution.

#### Explanation:

Re-write te equations so you have only constants on the RHS

Eqn 1:

Eqn 2:

Multiply Eqn 1 by 3 to make the x coefficient the same, so you have:

Eqn 1:

Eqn 2:

Add Eqn 1 & 2, you will get an inequality as both x and y terms cancell out.

This means the two equations cannot be resolved, so in terms of geometry, they are two lines which do not intersect.
