Solution:
Add the two equations, we will get

2x = 12
which gives x = 6.
Put this value of x in second equation, we will get
6 - y = 1
=> -y = -5
=> y = 5

(Type an ordered pair . Type N if there is no solution. Type R if the solution is all real number.)

Is the system consistent or inconsistent?
A.)___________inconsistent
B.)____________consistent

Answer: Consistent (A system is consistent if there is at least one solution.)

Are the equation dependent or independent
Dependent_______________
independent_______

Answer: Independent ( as there is one solution only)
