## Homework Statement

Solve the system of equations: { (1/2)x-y=3 and x=6+2y

## Homework Equations

NA

## The Attempt at a Solution

The solution is 3=3, which is an identity, which means that there is an infinite amount of solutions to the system. Here's where my question lies (asked my teacher but she didn't know):

This system of equations results in two graphs, or lines. Their graphs are identical, so on a graph it would look like a single line. But are they two

*different*lines occupying the same space on the plane, or are they the

*same*line? I hope this makes sense. I've attached a screenshot of the problem out of the book for reference.
