This question is about checking for the consistency of the given equations. Knowing a few equations, we can find whether the equations have a unique solution or infinite solutions, or no solution. Framing and solving equations is an integral part of Linear Equations and Quadratic Equations. Get as much practice as you can in these two topics because the benefits of being good at framing equations will be useful in other concepts during your CAT Preparation.
