I have two operations too chose from. Each operation is essentially a base added too a coefficient and a variable.
Since each operation appears to be linear and the two operations exist within the same system I decided to determine were the lines intercept.
This is not a problem out of a math book.
Since I want to find the point where x and y are equal to each other I set the two as equal to each other. After Reducing and simplifying I get;
I decided it would be quicker to work the problem out with out all the long coefficients too see if I could get at a solution at all. For simplicities sake I've been writing it out on paper as;
There are no fractions so I start by factoring.
Then move terms over
Combine like terms
This is were i get stuck. If I divide away the 3y+2 on the right hand side and move it too the left, I still have an x sitting over on the left side.
I can't just divide out the x on the left, since that would leave me with a 1 on the other side, X/X.
At first I thought it was a no solution type problem, but that doesn't seem to make sense. Have I just set the whole thing up wrong?
