12-136.

Use your knowledge of graphing to determine the number of solutions of this system. Do not actually solve the system. Explain your reasoning.

$y = -2(x - 1)^2 - 3$
$5x + 2y + 10 = 0$

Rewrite the equation of the line in $y = mx + b$ form.
Think about where would it be located on a graph.

Where is the vertex of the parabola?
Which direction does it open?
