Question

4. [10] Consider the system of linear equations

x + y + z = 4

x + y + 2z = 6

x + y + (b^{2} − 3)z = b + 2

where b is an unspecified real number. Determine, with justification, the values of b (if any) for which the system has

(i) no solutions;

(ii) a unique solution;

(ii) infinitely many solutions.

Answer #1

Find the values of a and b for which the following system of
linear equations is (i) inconsistent; (ii) has a unique solution;
(iii) has infinitely many solutions. For the case where the system
has infinitely many solutions, write the general solution.
x + y + z = a
x + 2y ? z = 0
x + by + 3z = 2

For a real number "a", consider the system of equations:
x+y+z=2
2x+3y+3z=4
2x+3y+(a^2-1)z=a+2
Which of the following statements is true?
A. If a= 3 then the system is inconsistent.
B. If a= 1 then the system has infinitely many solutions.
C. If a=−1 then the system has at least two distinct
solutions.
D. If a= 2 then the system has a unique solution.
E. If a=−2 then the system is inconsistent.

his is a linear algebra problem
Determine the values of a for which the system has no
solutions, exactly one solution, or infinitely many solutions.
x + 2y - 2z = 3
3x - y + 2z = 3
5x + 3y + (a^2 - 11)z = a + 6
For a = there is no solution.
For a = there are infinitely many solutions.
For a ≠ ± the system has exactly one solution.

Use Gauss-Jordan method (augmented matrix method) to
solve the following systems of linear equations.
Indicate whether the system has a unique solution, infinitely many
solutions, or no solution. Clearly write
the row operations you use.
(a)
x − 2y + z = 8
2x − 3y + 2z = 23
− 5y + 5z = 25
(b)
x + y + z = 6
2x − y − z = 3
x + 2y + 2z = 0

1)Solve the system of linear equations, using the Gauss-Jordan
elimination method. (If there is no solution, enter NO SOLUTION. If
there are infinitely many solutions, express your answer in terms
of the parameters t and/or s.)

4. Solve the system of linear equations by using the
Gauss-Jordan (Matrix) Elimination Method. No credit in use any
other method. Use exactly the notation we used in class and in the
text. Indicate whether the system has a unique solution, no
solution, or infinitely many solutions. In the latter case, present
the solutions in parametric form.
3x + 6y + 3z = -6
-2x -3y -z = 1
x +2y + z = -2

Use Gauss-Jordan method (augmented matrix method) to
solve the following systems of linear equations. Indicate whether
the system has a unique solution, infinitely many solutions, or no
solution. Clearly write the row operations you use. (a) (5 points)
x + y + z = 6 2x − y − z = 3 x + 2y + 2z = 0 (b) (5 points) x − 2y

The augmented matrix represents a system of linear equations in
the variables x and y.
[1 0 5. ]
[0 1 0 ]
(a) How many solutions does the system have: one, none, or
infinitely many?
(b) If there is exactly one solution to the system, then give
the solution. If there is no solution, explain why. If there are an
infinite number of solutions, give two solutions to the system.

for 10-12 you will solve the following system of equations:
2x+y+z=-2 2x-y+3z=6 3x-5y+4z=7 10) what is the solution for x? a)2
b)-3 c)infinitely many solutions d)no solution 11) what is the
solution for y? a)2 b)0 c)inifinitely many solution d)no solution
12) what is the solution for z? a)4 b)-8 c)infinitely many
solutions d)no solutions

consider the linear system of equations, 3x+2y=-3 and -x+ay=-4.
For which value of a does the system have no solutions, one unique
solution and infinite number of solutions?
