    Classifying system of equations Algebra II

    1. choose the correct description of the system of equations.
    x + 2y = 7 and 3x - 2y = 5

    a. consistent and independent
    b. consistent and dependent
    c. inconsistent
    d. inconsistent and dependent

    2. Choose the correct description of the system of equations:
    2x + 3y = 10 and 4x + 6y = 20

    a. consistent and independent
    b. consistent and dependent
    c. inconsistent
    d. inconsistent and dependent

    I'm having trouble with these two, step by step answers really help me out. Thanks in advanced.

    what makes a system of equations consistent or inconsistent? ... dependent or independent?

    how would you define those terms w/ regard to a system of equations?
