System of Linear Equations
System of consistent linear equations System of (linear) equations is said to be consistent if it has at least one solution. For example,
- System of equations is inconsistent because it has no solution, i.e., there is no value of x and y which satisfy both the equations. Here, two straight lines are parallel.
- System of equations is consistent because it has a solution x = 1, y = 1. Here lines intersect at one point.
