x - 2y - z = 0

x + 9y - 5z = 0

kx - y + z = 0

Work:

Elimination to find "z":

x - 2y - z = 0

x + 9y - 5z = 0

------------------

-11y + 4z = 0

z = 11y/4

Sub "z" into "x - 2y - z = 0" to find "x":

x - 2y -(11y/4) = 0

x - 19y/4 = 0

x = 19y/4

Sub "x" and "z" into "x + 9y - 5z = 0" to find "y":

(19y/4) + 9y - 5(11y/4) = 0

(19y + 36y - 55y) / 4 = 0

0y/4 = 0

So frustrated...I don't know what to do for this question. Please help me (step by step solution).

Thanks.

**Reiny**, Thursday, March 27, 2008 at 10:09pmFind the intersection of the first two lines:

subtract the first from the second

11y - 4z = 0

11y = 4z

y/z = 4/11

let y=4 and z=11 (it satisfies the above ratio)

back in the first

x - 8 - 11 = 0

x = 19

since clearly (0,0,0) lies on all three planes, the line joining (0,0,0) and (19,4,11) is the intersection line of the first two planes.

But all 3 planes are supposed to intersect in the same line, so obviously (19,4,11) must also lie on the third plane.

so sub it in....

k(19) - 8 - 11 = 0

k = 19/19 =1

so k=1
