Step 1
System of equations having infinite number of solutions is called dependent system.
System of equations having no solution is called inconsistent system.
Hence,
If a system of linear equations has infinitely many solutions, then the system is called dependent system.
If a system of linear equations has no solution, then the system is called inconsistent system.
