# Solve 2x + 6y = 5 and x + 3y = 2

**Solution:**

Given 2x + 6y = 5…(a) and x + 3y = 2

__Multiply__ second equation with ‘2‘

2x + 6y = 4 …(b)

__Subtract__ (a) from (b)

(2x + 6y) - (2x + 6y) = 5 - 4

Which is invalid

Hence, there is no solution.

## Solve 2x + 6y = 5 and x + 3y = 2

**Summary:**

By solving the equation 2x + 6y = 5 and x + 3y = 2, we get no solution.
