I am freshman that just recently skippeda garde in math and I need some help. The problems below are from my pop quiz out of the text book i gotta hand in on monday. I can't ahve my aad or mom checkin this cause they have no clue on this but i did the problems and need feed bac.
solve the system using linear combination method
12. 3x+ 2y-z=8
(my answer was (1,1,-3))
(my answer was infinite solution)
(my answer was in fraction form but she said no solutions were fractions)
#12 and 16 are correct
check your arithmetic for 18
I got (4,-3,2) and those values work for all 3 equations.
(You do know that you can check your answer yourself by merely substituting your values into each equation, don't you?)
