Homework Help: algebra

Classify this system of equations:

5x + y = 19
x + 5y = 23

a) consistent, independent
b) inconsistent
c) inconsistent, dependent
d) dependent

Would elimination or substitution be the way to solve this? I tried both ways and I either got a negative or a strange decimal. Thanks!
