Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay. i get that, but which one exactly? I picked dependent but I'm not too sure.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This would be an inconsistent system. Notice that both the equations are identical, except one is equal to 2, and the other to 6. This would imply that 2=6. Since this is an impossibility, there can't be any solution so the system is inconsistent.
