My teacher told me that my answer was incorrect even though it seemed logical to me. Is there something I'm missing.

Q: Write an equation of a line that forms a system with the equation 3x - 2y = 8 that has infinitely solutions.
A: 3x - 2y = 8.
I believe this to be correct because it makes an identical line to one of her correct answers (6x - 4y = 16) and nowhere did it specify that it had to be new. Could you tell me my mistake?

Did you really think that your teacher intended you to just copy what she had written? On a technical level repeating the same equation does NOT give a "system".
