Is this right?
9x- 7y= -14
7y - 9x = 14.
It is going to have a point.
It is going to be consistent.
And it is dependent.

• Algebra -

The two equations are dependent. One can be derived from the other, by multiplying both sides by -1 and rearranging. You need an independent equation to solve for x and y (a "point" solution).
