Linear Systems Vocab

System of Equations Two or more equations with the same variables.
Consistent A system of equations that has at least one solution.
Inconsistent A system of equations has no solutions.
Independent A system of equations that has exactly one solution.
Dependent A system of equations that has an infinite number of solutions.
Substitution Method A method of solving a system of equations in which one equation is solved for one variable in terms of the other.
Elimination Method A method of solving a system of equations in which one of the variables is eliminated by adding or subtracting the equations.
System of Inequalities A system of inequalities with the same variables.
Constraints Conditions given to variables, often expressed as linear inequalities.
Feasible Region The intersection of the graphs in a system of equations.
Bounded A region is bounded when the graph of a system of constraints is a polygonal region.
