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.
