**Classifying Systems of Linear Equations**

2
Types of Systems There are 3 different types of systems of linear equations 3 Different Systems: Consistent-independent Inconsistent Consistent-dependent

3
**Type 1: Consistent-independent**

A system of linear equations having exactly one solution is described as being consistent-independent. y The system has exactly one solution at the point of intersection x

4
Type 2: Inconsistent A system of linear equations having no solutions is described as being inconsistent. y The system has no solution, the lines are parallel x Remember, parallel lines have the same slope

5
**Type 3: Consistent-dependent**

A system of linear equations having an infinite number of solutions is described as being consistent-dependent. y The system has infinite solutions, the lines are identical x

6
So basically…. If the lines have the same y-intercept b, and the same slope m, then the system is consistent-dependent If the lines have the same slope m, but different y-intercepts b, the system is inconsistent If the lines have different slopes m, the system is consistent-independent

7
Example 1 To solve, rewrite each equation in the form y = mx +b (1) (2) x + 5y = 9 3x – 2y = 12 Isolating y in line (1) Isolating y in line (2) x + 5y = 9 3x – 2y = 12 -2y = -3x + 12 5y = -x + 9

8
**What type of system is it?**

What is the slope and y-intercept for line (1)? What is the slope and y-intercept for line (2)? Since the lines have different slopes they will intersect. The system will have one solution and is classified as being consistent-independent.
