4) Solve the following system. The augmented matrix is which reduces to . So x 1 = x 4 – 1 and x 2 = 2 x 3 or 5) Solve the following system. The augmented matrix is which reduces to . Since the last column has a pivot, the system is inconsistent and has no solution. 6) Solve the following system. The augmented matrix is which reduces to . So x 1 = 0 and x 2 = -3 x 3 , or .
7) Show that in order for the system below to be consistent,

Unformatted text preview: a , b , and c must satisfy c=a+b . The augmented matrix is which reduces to . In order for the system to be consistent the last row must be all 0’s, so a + b –c = 0 or c = a + b. 8) Let a and b be constants. Solve the following system. The augmented matrix is which reduces to . So . 9) Solve the following system of linear equations for the angles , and where , and . Let x 1 = sin( α ), x 2 = cos( β ) and x 3 = tan( γ ), then or which reduces to So sin( α ) = 1, cos( β ) = -1, tan( γ ) = 0 Or , and...
