"How else" can we describe the two (unknown to us) lines? We don't know how the lines

Please reply with the missing information, and provide your thoughts and reasoning so far. Thank you!

The consistent system is a system that has at least one solution. The inconsistent system is a system that has no solution.

I thought the inconsistent is it would be the same slope as the intercept would be one possible equation. But that is not correct. Please let me know if that is correct, trying to understand this!!

You are correct that your answer is incorrect.

To learn about systems of equations, their types of solutions, and how these relate to graphing, please try

Thanks, I will check that site
