system of equations
posted by Nancy .
solve using any method and identify the system as consistent, inconsistent or dependent. 3x4y=8
6x2y=10
I want to use elimination. this is taking me forever!

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
