The given equations are:
2x+3y= 8    (1)
4x+6y= 7    (2)
 
Comparing these equations with the standard form of linear equations in one variable, we have:
a1 = 2, b1 = 3, c1 = 8
a2 = 4, b2 = 6, c2 = 7
 
So, a1 /a2 = b1 /b2 ≠ c1 /c2
 
Thus, the pair of linear equation is inconsistent. So, the given pair of equations has no solution.
