Linear System Words

System of Equations Two or more equations with the same variables.
Inconsistent If a system of equations has no solution.
Dependant If a system of equations has an infinite number of solutions.
Substitution method One equation is solved for one variable in terms of the other. Then, this expression is substituted for the variable in the other
System of inequalities A set of inequalities with the same variables.
Constraints Conditions given to variables, often expressed as linear inequalities.
Feasible region The intersection of the graphs.
Bounded When the graph of the system of constraints is a polygonal region.
Vertices The maximum and minimum value of a related function.
Unbounded A system of inequalities forms a region that is open.
Linear programming The process of finding maximum or minimum values of a function for a region defined by inequalities.
Ordered triple The solution of a system of equations in three variables x, y, and z.
Elimination method Eliminate one of the variables by adding or subtracting the equations. When you add the two equations, the result is a new equation that is also true.
Octants Planes that intersect at right angles and divide space into eight regions.
Consistant If a system of equations has at least one solution.
