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

1. y= 2x-1 and x+y= 2

The system is independent. x = 1 and y =1.

2. 2x-3y=12 and 3y-2x= -12

The system is dependent.

3. 3x-y=4 and 3x-y=0

The system is inconsistent.

Solve each system by the substitution method. Indicate whether each system is independent, dependent or inconsistent
4. x-y=3 and 3x-2y=3

x = y + 3
3x - 2y = 3
3(y + 3) - 2y =3
3y + 9 - 2y =3
y = -6
x = -3
There is only one ...
