Homework Assignment #1 Math 67 UC Davis, Fall 2011 Homework due. Tuesday 10/4/11 at discussion section. Reading material. Read Chapters 1–2 and Appendix A in the textbook. Problems 1. For each of the following systems of linear equations, if the system has a unique solution, ﬁnd it; otherwise, indicate if there are no solutions or an inﬁnite number of solutions. (a) ± x + y = 22 x-2 y = 7 (b) ±-4 x + 2 y = 10 2 x-y = 10 (c) ± x + y = 10 5 x + 5 y = 50 (d) x + 2 y + 3 z = 11 2 x + 6 z = 14 x + y + z = 5 2. In the story believed to be the origin of the expression “ Eureka! ”, the Greek mathe-matician Archimedes discovered how to measure the volume of an object by immersing it in liquid, thereby helping King Hiero II of Syracuse to ﬁnd out if his goldsmith had cheated him by using a higher percentage of silver and a smaller one of gold than he was supposed to in a crown he had been commissioned to make. Assume that the crown was made of a mixture of gold and silver, weighed 1 pound
