system of equations

posted by .

solve using any method and identify the system as consistent, inconsistent or dependent. 3x-4y=8
6x-2y=10
I want to use elimination. this is taking me forever!

  • system of equations -

    Why use "elimination", it is perfectly set up for substitution.

    4y = 8
    y = 2

    sub that into the other equation, ....
    6x - 2(2) = 10
    6x = 14
    x = 14/6 = 7/3
