2x-6y=-18

Solve system of equations by graphing then classify as Independent on dependent and consistent or inconsistent?

**Reiny**, Saturday, November 13, 2010 at 4:50pmWithout any work, I can see that each line has a slope of 1/3.

So you will have two parallel lines, which of course will not meet.

So what classification would the system fall under?

But they are inconsistent, since there is no solution.
