Is this system of equations inconsistent? Is it dependent?

x = 3y + 4
6y = 2x - 6

  • Algebra 2 -

    Add six to both sides of the first equation.

    2x = 6y + 6
    x = 3y + 4

    Multiply second equation by two.

    2x = 6y + 8

    If you subtract the revised second equation from the first, what does it give you?
