Dependent
When a system of equations has an infinite number of solutions.
Elimination
A method for solving a system of equations by adding or subtracting two equations to eliminate one variable.
Inconsistent
A system of equations in which the graphs are parallel. No ordered pairs satisfy both equations so it is Ø.
Independent
When a system of equations has exactly one solution.
Substitution
An algebraic method for solving a system of equations in which one variable is solved in terms of the other variables.
System of Equations
Two equations with the same variables. A solution of a system of equations is an ordered pair that satisfies both equations.
