I Understood the last one , but once I ran upon this one I Got confused again. x + 4y =-19 -3x - 12y = 57 The answers are:dependent (-3,-4) inconsistent (-3,4) When the problems threw in the dependent and inconsistent answers, I couldn't figure out the answer. Thank You So Much!Answer by fractalier(2101)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Okay, cause I'm going home now...from x + 4y = -19 -3x - 12y = 57 we can multiply the top equation by -3 and get -3x - 12y = 57, exactly the same as the other equation. Hence this system is dependent, they represent the same line and have an infinite number of solutions.
