    2x2 system of linear equations

    Hello guys,

    I need to construct family of linear equations that are similar to this one:

    \begin{array}{rcl}x+2y  & = & 4 \\ 5x-y & = & \frac{1}{5}\end{array}

    It was suggested that it should be done by drawing conclusion from relation between coefficients.

    Any hint is appreciated!

    Thanks

    Is this part of an IB Portfolio task?

    Nope - to be honest, I don't know what is IB portfolio. It is a section from project in linear algebra class.

    I am having trouble with finding some meaningful relation between coefficients.
