    Solve this system of linear equations 3x - 2y = 1 and 6x - 4y = 3

    Okay so I multiplied the first equation by two and got 6x - 4y = 2 and so is there not an answer to this question because the second equation is 6x - 4y= 3 ???

    There is not any solution. This is because the lines are parallel.
