# Pair Of Linear Equations In Two Variables

#### Question 3:

On comparing the ratios, find out whether the following pair of linear equations are consistent, or inconsistent.

#### Answer:

(i) 3*x*
+ 2*y* = 5

2*x* − 3*y* = 7

These linear equations are intersecting each other at one point and thus have only one possible solution. Hence, the pair of linear equations is consistent.

(ii)2*x*
− 3*y* = 8

4*x* − 6*y* = 9

Since ,

Therefore, these linear equations are parallel to each other and t...
