the system of equations 3x -6y=20 and 2x-4y=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.

  • algebra -

    If you multiply the first equation by 2 and the second equation by 3 you get the following set of equations:

    6x-12y=40
    6x-12y=9

    They can not both be true. They are inconsistent with each other.
