Linear Equations

show that if the linear equations:

x_1 + Kx_2 = c and x_1 + Ix_2 = d

have the same solution set, then the equations are identical.

How can I prove this?

When x_2 = 0, x_1 must be c according to the first equation, but d according to the second. Hence c = d.

Is that sufficient help?
