Which of the following pairs of linear equations are consistent/ inconsistent? If consistent, obtain the solution graphically: x – y = 8, 3x – 3y = 16 - Mathematics

Which of the following pairs of linear equations are consistent/ inconsistent? If consistent, obtain the solution graphically:

x – y = 8, 3x – 3y = 16

Solution

x - y = 8

3x - 3y = 16

`a_1/a_2 = 1/3, b_1/b_2 = (-1)/-3 = 1/3 and c_1/c_2 = 8/16 = 1/2`

Since `a_1/a_2 = b_1/b_2 ≠ c_1/c_2`

Therefore, these linear equations are parallel to each other and thus have no possible solution. Hence, the pair of linear equations is inconsistent.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
