(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

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

2. Relevant equations

NA

3. 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 twodifferentlines occupying the same space on the plane, or are they thesameline? I hope this makes sense. I've attached a screenshot of the problem out of the book for reference.
