Given pair of linear equations is

– x + py = 1 …(i)

px – y – 1 = 0 …(ii)

On comparing with ax + by + c = 0,

We get,

a1 = -1, b1 = p, c1 =- 1;

a2 = p, b2 = – 1, c2 =- 1;

a1 /a2 = -1/p

b1 /b2 = – p

c1 /c2 = 1

Since, the lines equations has no solution i.e., both lines are parallel to each other.

a1/a2 = b1/b2≠ c1/c2

-1/p = – p ≠ 1

Taking last two parts, we get

p ≠ -1

Taking first two parts, we get

p2 = 1

p = + 1

Hence, the given pair of linear equations has no solution for p = 1.
