The first equation is in **standard form**, which we can graph by finding the **intercepts**: The second equation is in **point-slope form**. We can graph this equation by rewriting it in **slope-intercept form** to get and then graphing: These lines are parallel, which means they will never intersect. They will always be able to glance over and wave at the other, but they will never be able to shake hands or slow dance. A pity, because they can tear it up on the dance floor. There is no solution to the system of linear equations. |
