describe the system 6x minus 2y equals 10 and 9x minus 3y equals 8 as consistent and independent, consistent and dependent , or inconsistent. explain. i put consistent and dependent .
If 6x - 2y = 10, then (if you multiply both sides by 3/2) you can show that 9x - 3y must equal 15. That is inconsistent with your second equation.
