1.24 Inconsistent Equations

A system of linear equations is called consistent if it has at least one solution, and it is called inconsistent if it has no solution.

Consistent Consistent Inconsistent
Two lines that intersect Two lines that coincide Two parallel lines
One point of intersectionInfinitely many points No point of intersection
One solutionMany solutions No solution
Example:
x + y = 7
x - y = 5
Example:
x + y = 8
3x + 3y = 24
Example:
x + y = 8
3x + 3y = 14

Let a1x + b1y + c1 = 0 and a2x+b2y+c2 = 0 are any two equations. a1 and a2 are the coefficients of x and b1 and b2 are the coefficients of y and c1 and c2 are the constants.
If a1b2 = a2b1, then the equations a1x + b1y + c1 = 0 and a2x+b2y+c2 = 0 are inconsistent equations.

Example:
x + y = 8 and 3x + 3y = 14, check the given equations inconsistent or not.
Solution:
Given that x + y = 8 and 3x + 3y = 14
Here a1 = 1 and a2 = 3
b1 = 1 and b2 = 3
a1b2 = a2b1
1 * 3 = 3 * 1
3 = 3
Therefore the given equations are inconsistent.
