There is only one solution for x and y 2. There are an infinite number of solutions for x and y 3. There are no solutions to the system of equations (in this case, 2 equations) In this case, there are an infinite number of solutions for x and y because the second equation is exactly 3 times the first equation. A consistent system has least one solution. Therefore, this system of two equations is CONSISTENT. A dependent system means that every solution for one equation is also a solution for the other equation. Therefore, this system is a DEPENDENT. >>>The final answer is: This system is CONSISTENT and DEPENDENT. --------------------------------------------
