Math 136 Assignment 3 Solutions 1. For each of the following systems of linear equations: i) Write the augmented matrix. ii) Row-reduce the augmented matrix into row echelon form. iii) Find the general solution of the system or explain why the system is inconsistent. a) x 1 + x 2 = - 7 2 x 1 +4 x 2 + x 3 = - 16 x 1 +2 x 2 + x 3 =9 Solution: i) 110 - 7 241 - 16 121 9 . ii) - 7 - 16 9 r 2 - 2 r 1 r 3 - r 1 - 7 021 - 2 011 16 r 2 r 3 - 7 16 - 2 r 3 - 2 r 2 1 1 0 - 7 0 1 1 16 00 - 1 - 34 ( - 1) r 3 - 7 16 001 34 iii) By back-substitution we get x 3 = 34, x 2 = 16 - 34 = - 18 and x 1 = - 7 - ( - 18) = 11. Hence the general solution is ( x 1 ,x 2 3 ) = (11 , - 18 , 34). 1
