Hi,

I don't understand how to work this sum out, a step-by-step explanation would be much appreciated.

Find the value of m for which the following simultaneous equations have no solutions.

Thanks,

If you solve these equations simultaneously you should get:

and

So now you can see that there will be no solutions when as when m is this value x and y will be undefined.
