## Comments

Kelly, generally these equations have to be paired to answer these questions. For example, you can answer whether the system of equations

x+y=2 and x-y=4 are Consistent Independent, Consistent dependent or inconsistent. But you cannot evaluate this one equation at a time.

There is a good article on what these terms mean at

I hope this helps. John
