Unformatted text preview: MA 265 HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT #1 SOLUTIONS #1. Page 8; Exercise 1. In Exercises 1 through 14, solve each given linear system by the method of elimination. x + 2 y = 8 3 x- 4 y = 4 Solution: First we eliminate x . Multiply the first equation by (- 3), then add to the second:- 3 x- 6 y =- 24 3 x- 4 y = 4- 10 y =- 20 = y = 2 . Substituting this value into the equation x + 2 y = 8 yields x + 4 = 8, so that x = 4. Hence x = 4, y = 2. #2. Page 8; Exercise 2. In Exercises 1 through 14, solve each given linear system by the method of elimination. 2 x- 3 y + 4 z =- 12 x- 2 y + z =- 5 3 x + y + 2 z = 1 Solution: First we eliminate x . Multiply the second equation by (- 2), then add to the first; and multiply the second equation by (- 3) then add to the third: 2 x- 3 y + 4 z =- 12- 2 x + 4 y- 2 z = 10 y + 2 z =- 2- 3 x + 6 y- 3 z = 15 3 x + y + 2 z = 1 7 y- z = 16 This gives the system of equations y + 2 z =- 2 7 y- z = 16 Now we eliminate y . Multiple the first equation by (- 7) and add to the second:...
