### Consistent System Of Linear Equations

A system of equations with at least one solution. Yeah, at least one solution means that we can give at least one answer, consistently.### Dependent System Of Linear Equations

A system of linear equation with infinitely many solutions.### Function

A relation between sets of input and output where each input is related to one and only one output. The lobster model of mathematics.### Graph

A diagram representing data or relationship(s) between variables.### Inconsistent System Of Linear Equations

A system of equations with no solution. We're talking zip, zero, nada.### Independent System Of Linear Equations

A system of linear equations with a unique solution.### Intercept

The point where the graph of a function crosses the*x*-axis or

*y*-axis.

### Matrix

A rectangular array of numbers arranged into rows and columns.### Slope

How steep a line is. It's measured as rise over run. Think ski slopes.### Solution To A System Of Equations

The value(s) of the variables that solve all the equations simultaneously.### System Of Equations
