When you solved the system, what solution did you get?

. . . . ."x = (some number), y = (some other number)" => independent

. . . . ."0 = 0" (or similar true-but-pointless equalities) => dependent

. . . . ."0 = 3" (or similar nonsense) => inconsistent

Where does your solution fit? If you're not sure, please reply showing your steps and reasoning. Thank you.
