(10 Points) Score Solve 5 x 1 + 3 x 2 + x 3 = - 3 10 x 1 + 10 x 2 + 4 x 3 = - 2 15 x 1 + 17 x 2 + 10 x 3 = 5 We can factor 5 3 1 - 3 10 10 4 - 2 15 17 10 5 5 3 1 - 3 2 4 2 4 3 8 7 14 5 3 1 - 3 2 4 2 4 3 2 3 6 Let us check this factorization: 1 2 1 3 2 1 5 3 1 4 2 3 = 5 3 1 10 10 4 15 17 10 Then we back-solve 5 3 1 4 2 3 x 1 x 2 x 3 = - 3 4 6 = x 1 x 2 x 3 = - 1 0 2 Let us check the back-solve: 5 3 1 4 2 3 - 1 0 2 = - 3 4 6 Let us check the solution in the original linear system: 5 3 1 10 10 4 15 17 10 - 1 0 2 = - 3 - 2 5 70% of the class solved this problem correctly. answer = x 1 = - 1 ,x 2 = 0 ,x 3 = 2 . 2
