Thx everyone!
Are linearily dependent and independent used properly in the following statements: 1)Inconsistent: Two parallel lines are linearily independent yet have no solutions. yx=1 yx=2 2)Inconsistent: Three lines intersect at three different points are linearily independent yet have no solutions. y+2x=1 yx=1 yx=2 3)Consistent: Three lines intersect at one point are linearily dependent yet have one solution. y+2x=1 yx=1 y2x=1 Given these examples and what I stated in post #1, you can see what my confusion is.
