Consider this system: {3(x+y)=x-3 -y=2x+3/3 I need to figure out if they are dependent or independent and if it's consistent or inconsistent. Thank you for your time.Answer by ewatrrr(10682)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! ``` Hi, A consistent system has at least one solution. An inconsistent system has no solutions. An independent system has exactly one solution. A dependent system has infinitely many solutions. 3(x+y)=x-3 -y = (2x+3)/3 2x+3y = -3 -2x-3y = 3 0 = 0 Dependent system, has infinitely many solutions Graphically these EQs represent same Line ```
