Consider the following system of equations.
y=2x-2
y-2x=9

What can you conclude about the system of equations?

a. The system of equations is inconsistent.
b. The system of equations is dependent.
c. The system of equations is independent.
d. none of these.

if you set them up in a standard way, you have

2x-y = 2
2x-y = -9

(a) both cannot be true
