Well to be clear to you, What I know is, either there are infinitely many solutions or unique solution or no solution for a system of linear equations. But for exactly two solutions, I am confused. As per me the above statement should be true and there is no system of linear equations with exactly two solutions. Do you agree with my reasoning or not? Also, if there are exactly two solutions, then the equation must be quadratic. (Something different in my mind, right now). Last edited by shashank dwivedi; June 3rd, 2018 at 09:05 PM.
