Graph the system of equations. Then determine whether the system has one solution, no solution, or infinitely many solutions. If the system has a solution, name it.
  1. Solve each equation for y.
  2. Graph both equations using the slope-intercept method.
  3. Observe the graph.
  4. Identify the solution(s).
