When a system of linear equations has no solution, that means you have parallel lines, which means the lines have the same slope. So put both equations into slope-intercept form (*y* = *mx* + *b*) first:

In order for those lines to be parallel, their slopes must be equal, which means 2/5 = -4/*k*. That means *k* must be equal to –10.
