 Question 82924: If for two linear equations f(x) = k and g(x) = -f(x), what can be said about the system of equations f(x) and g(x)? A. They are consistent. B. They are dependent. C. They are inconsistent. D. Insufficient information.Answer by jim_thompson5910(28715)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Lets say you let k=5, then f(x)=3. Since g(x)=-f(x), this means g(x)=-3 (the opposite of f(x)). So if we graph the two equations we get: graph of and From this we can see that since these two lines are parallel, they will never intersect. So they are inconsistent.
