Work Step by Step

Refer to the Algebraic - Graphical Connection just before the exercise set. $y=-3x-2$ $y=-3x+5$ is an example of a system where the equations represent parallel lines, meaning that there are no intersection points (solutions) So, it is possible for a system to have no solutions. The statement is false.
