Solve the system by graphing. (If the system is inconsistent, enter INCONSISTENT. If the system is dependent, enter DEPENDENT.)
3x+2y=5
4x-3y=1
I have try dependent and inconsistent and either work. What am I doing wrong.
Thank you

1. You should have definitions for
dependent, independent, and incosistent.

if there is a unique solution , the system would be
independent.

since the two lines have different slopes, they MUST intersect in a point, thus independent

Wolfram is great ...
