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.
