Given two points ( x 1 , y 1 ) and ( x 2 , y 2 )
the slope is given by the formula
m = Δ y Δ x = y 1 - y 2 x 1 - x 2

Given the points (15,16) and (13,10)
the slope is m = 16 - 10 15 - 13 = 6 2 = 3

Given a slope m and a point ( x 1 , y 1 )
the point-slope form of the linear equation is
y - y 1 = m ( x - x 1 )

For the given values this becomes
y−16=3(x−15)

I have a system of linear equations that has no solutions.
It looks like this in augmented matrix form.
1 1 2 5 2 1 0 1 1 8 1 3 1 5 12 41
I need to replace right hand value in equation 4 (41) with a value that will give me a unique solution when in reduced row echelon form. How do I approach this problem in a logical way to find the possible values?

General form of linear equation using two variables I always read can be written:
Ax+By+c=0
where A and B cannot both be 0.
So does it means like 1x+0y+c=0
is a linear equation of two variables i.e basically what I am asking is that both A and B cannot be zero but can either A or B be 0 like:
0x+4y5=0 or 3x+0y15=0
Are the above equation a Linear equation of 2 variables?
