inconsistent system: find g(x) so, w/ f(x)=2x-8, syst. is...

I need help typing an equation for g(x) that results, with f(x), in an inconsistent system

f(x)=2x-8

g(x)=?

Thank you in advance for any help :-)

When you graph systems of equations, what sorts of graphs end up being "inconsistent" systems? (Look back through your book and / or your class notes, if you don't recall.)

Pick a function g(x) that will create that sort of graph. There are infinitely-many "correct" answers. :wink:
