June 2017 CC Alg I 8

Using substitution, we can rewrite the second equation as
3(-2x + 2x + 8) = 12
3(8) = 12
24 = 12
huh?  NO solution

If we were to solve the second equation for Y=, we would get:
by distributing the 3
-6x + 3y = 12
add 6x to each side
3y = 6x + 12
Divide both sides by 3
y = 2x + 4 this is parallel to the first line y = 2x + 8 and therefore the lines will never meet
making the answer “No solution”
