Consistent, Inconsistent, and Dependent Systems | Best Algebra Review
A consistent system has two line that intersect in just one point, which means there is just one ordered pair that will satisfy both equations. An inconsistent system contains lines that do not cross, which means there are no ordered pairs that can satisfy either equation. A dependent system has two lines that intersect each other an infinite amount of times, giving it an infinite number of solutions.
