Not what you're looking for?

Solve by graphing, indicate whether each system is independent, inconsistent, or dependent.

1. x + y = 5

x - y = -1

2. y = -x

y = -x + 3

Solve by substitution, indicate whether each system is independent, inconsistent, or dependent.

3. x - y = 3

3x - 2y = 3

4. 2x - y = 3

6x - 9 = 3y

Solve by the addition method, indicate whether each system is independent, inconsistent, or dependent.

5. -3x + y = 3

2x - 3y = 5

6. 5x - 3y= -20

3x + 2y = 7

Solve each system by the method of your choice. (indicate the method)

7. 3x - 2y = 8

x = -2y

8. 4y = -5x

5x + 8y = 20
