1. Use substitution to solve the system of equations given below.

Y= -2/3X - 5 2x + 3y = 5.

Substitute first equation into the second

2x + 3(-2/3 x - 5) =5

2x - 2x - 15 = 5

-15 = 5

Statement is not true therefore there is no solution to the system of equations. This means that the lines are parallel.
