Exam: Midterm Exam 1 Course: M340L Page: 2of 5 Multiple Choice Questions Question 1. (4pts): Which of the following can not be the number of solutions of a system of linear equations (a) 0 (b) 1 (c) 5 (d) infinitely many (e) none of the above (each can be the number of solutions to a linear system). Solution: The correct answer is (c). If the system is inconsistent, the number of solutions is 0. If it is is consistent, then it either has or doesn’t have free variables. If there are free variables, there are infinitely many solutions, If there are no free variables, the solution is unique. Therefore, 5 can not be the number of solutions of a linear system. / Question 2. (4pts): For what values of h and k is the following system inconsistent? 31 x 1 + 4 x 2 = h - 5 x 1 + x 2 = k (a) h = 1 4 k (b) h = 31 5 k (c) h = - 31 5 k (d) h = - 1 4 k (e) the system is consistent for all values of h and k Solution: The correct answer is (e). The augmented matrix of the system has two pivots in the echelon form
