Do the equations x = 4y + 1 and x = 4y – 1 have the same solution?
The equations given in the problem x = 4y + 1 and x = 4y – 1 are linear equations that relate two variables x and y.
The graph of the two equations are two parallel lines. No set of values satisfying the relation x = 4y - 1 is the same as that satisfying the relation x = 4y + 1. The two equations do not have a common solution.
