# 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
