# Can a system of two linear inequalities only have one solution?

Space and AstronomyA system of linear equations **usually has a single solution**, but sometimes it can have no solution (parallel lines) or infinite solutions (same line).

## Can a linear inequality have only one solution?

**Most of the time, an inequality has more than one or even infinity solutions**. For example the inequality: x>3 . The solutions of this inequality are “all numbers strictly greater than 3”. There’s an infinite amount of these numbers (e.g. 4, 5, 100, 100000, 6541564564654645 …).

## Can a system of linear inequalities in two variables have exactly one solution?

**No**. A system of linear equations in two variables may have zero, one, or infinitely many solutions.

## Can a system of 2 linear inequalities have a no solution?

Alissa Fong. Some inequalities do not have a solution. **When two inequalities have parallel lines and the shaded areas do not overlap (i.e., the opposite areas are shaded), then the system has no solution**. This means that there is no coordinate point that makes both inequalities true.

## How many solution does a linear inequality in two?

infinitely many

Linear inequalities with two variables have **infinitely many** ordered pair solutions, which can be graphed by shading in the appropriate half of a rectangular coordinate plane.

## Can inequalities have multiple solutions?

The solution set of an inequality is the set of all solutions. **Typically an inequality has infinitely many solutions** and the solution set is easily described using interval notation.

## Does the system of inequalities have solution?

**The solution set for a system of inequalities is not a single point, but rather an entire region defined by the overlapping areas of each individual inequality in the system**. Every point within this region will be a possible solution to both inequalities and thus for the whole system.

## Can inequalities have no solution?

Note: Can an inequality have no solution? **You bet it can**! An inequality has no solution will always give you a contradiction, no matter what value you plug in for the variable.

## When can you say that a system of a linear inequalities has a solution no solution?

You can verify whether a point is a solution to a system of linear inequalities in the same way you verify whether a point is a solution to a system of equations. Systems of inequalities can have no solutions **when boundary lines are parallel**.

## Is it possible for a system of three linear inequalities to have no solution?

Video quote: *So there's going to be no solution to that linear that system of linear inequalities. There's no ordered pair XY that solves both of those at the same time there's no intersection.*

## Can two linear equations have more than one solution?

**There can be more than one solution to a system of equations**. A system of linear equations will have one point of intersection, or one solution.

## How do you know if a linear system has no solution?

A system of linear equations has one solution when the graphs intersect at a point. No solution. A system of linear equations has no solution **when the graphs are parallel**.

## How many solutions does this linear system have?

With linear systems of equations, there are three possible outcomes in terms of number of solutions: One solution. **Infinitely many solutions**. No Solutions at all.

## How many solutions does a system of inequalities have?

A linear system of inequalities has **an infinite number of solutions**. Recall that when graphing a linear inequality the solution is a shaded region of the graph which contains all the possible solutions to the inequality. In a system, there are two linear inequalities.

## Which equation has only one solution?

Linear Equations With one Solution

On solving we have 7x = 35 or **x = 5**. The above linear equation is only true if x = 5 and hence the given linear equation has only one solution i.e. x = 5. Example 2: Consider the equation 9(x – 1) – 35 = 8x + 37.

## How many solutions might a single linear inequality have?

The solution set of a single linear inequality is always a half-plane, so there are **infinitely many** solutions.

## How many solutions does inconsistent system of linear equations have?

no solution

A consistent system of equations has at least one solution, and an inconsistent system has **no solution**.

## How many solutions does the system of equations above have?

The system of equations above has how many solutions? One approach is to begin solving the system (using the elimination method) and see what happens. As we can see, this equation has **infinitely many solutions**.

## Why does this system have infinite solutions?

The system of an equation has infinitely many solutions **when the lines are coincident, and they have the same y-intercept**. If the two lines have the same y-intercept and the slope, they are actually in the same exact line.

## How many solutions does a consistent and dependent system have?

Systems of equations can be classified by the number of solutions. If a system has at least one solution, it is said to be consistent . If a consistent system has exactly one solution, it is independent . If a consistent system has an infinite number of solutions, it is dependent .

## How many solutions does an independent system have?

a single solution

A dependent system of equations has infinite solutions, and an independent system has **a single solution**.

## How many solutions does a consistent system of two linear equation in two variables have?

A consistent system of equations has **at least one solution**. A consistent system is considered to be an independent system if it has a single solution, such as the example we just explored. The two lines have different slopes and intersect at one point in the plane.

## Is a system of linear equations has one solution What does this mean about the two lines?

If a system of linear equations has one solution, **the two lines will intersect at exactly one point**. A linear equation is the one in which the variables are raised to power 1 or -1. The solution of an equation refers to all the possible values of the variable that satisfy the equation.

## What does it mean to have one solution in a linear equation?

The linear equations in one variable is **an equation which is expressed in the form of ax+b = 0, where a and b are two integers, and x is a variable and has only one solution**. For example, 2x+3=8 is a linear equation having a single variable in it. Therefore, this equation has only one solution, which is x = 5/2.

## Does each system of linear equations have a solution?

A linear system may behave in any one of three possible ways: **The system has infinitely many solutions**. The system has a single unique solution.
