solution to system of linear equations

Without graphing, can you use the slope to determine whether there is a solution for a system of two linear equations in two unknowns? How?

Solution Preview

Yes, you can determine whether there is a solution for a system of two linear equations using slopes.

To have one and only one solution (or unique solution), their slopes cannot be equal to each other.

for example:
x + ...
