the system of equations 3x 6y=20 and 2x4y=3 Is
dependent
consistent
inconsistent
independent
I think its inconsistent because somehow i ended up with 12=49.. can u show me the work too.I think i did it wrong.

If you multiply the first equation by 2 and the second equation by 3 you get the following set of equations:
6x12y=40
6x12y=9
They can not both be true. They are inconsistent with each other.
