Study Notes
Classifying Systems of Linear Equations

Independent System: Contains exactly one solution; represented visually by two lines that intersect at a single point.

Dependent System: Has infinitely many solutions; shown graphically as coinciding lines, indicating they are the same line.

Inconsistent System: Results in no solutions; depicted by parallel lines that never intersect.

Consistent System: At least one solution exists; this term encompasses both independent and dependent systems.
Solving Systems Algebraically

Infinite Solutions Determination: If the resulting equation is a TRUE STATEMENT (e.g., 7=7), it indicates infinite solutions.

No Solution Determination: If resolving leads to a FALSE STATEMENT (e.g., 2=5), it signifies that the system has no solutions.
Graphical Representations and Classifications

Resulting Equation: 0 = 0: Indicates coinciding lines; classified as consistent and dependent due to infinite solutions.

Solving for x Successfully: Represents lines intersecting at exactly one point, classifying the system as consistent and independent.

Resulting Equation: 2 = 2: Represents a contradiction; visual representation shows parallel lines, classifying it as inconsistent.
Example of a Dependent System

Dependent System Example:
 Equation 1: y = 2x + 3
 Equation 2: 3 + y = 2x
 Both equations represent the same line, confirming the nature of dependence.
