# Solve 3x - 5y = 17 and 9x - 15y = -4

**Solution:**

The given equations are __linear equations__ which can be solved simultaneously as shown below:

3x - 5y = 17 ---(1)

9x - 15y = -4 ----(2)

__Multiply__ (1) by 3 and subtract (2) from it

9x - 15y = 51

__9x - 15y = -4__

0x - 0y = 55

Since the left hand side is zero implies that the set of equations are inconsistent and hence No solution.

## Solve 3x - 5y = 17 and 9x - 15y = -4

**Summary:**

On solving 3x - 5y = 17 and 9x - 15y = -4 there is no solution as the set of linear equations are inconsistent.
