 Question 164252: This is 1 question with a 2 Parts. On a graph that has a system of equations of 8x - 7y = 49 -8x + 7y = -49 Is the system consistent or incosistent? Are the equations dependent or independent? Answer by jim_thompson5910(29613)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Simply add the equations together to get: ``` 8x - 7y = 49 + -8x + 7y = -49 ----------------- 0x + 0y = 0 0 = 0 ``` Since the equation is ALWAYS true, this means that the system is consistent and dependent. In other words, there are an infinite number of solutions.
