**Reiny**, Saturday, February 27, 2010 at 1:44pmSomebody expects you to solve a 2 by 2 system using matrices with echelon reduced form ??

That's like going to the corner store to buy milk in an 18 wheeler tractor-trailer.

Furthermore the system has no solutions, since if you multiply the first by 5, you get

20x - 10y = 45

now subtract the two to get

0 = 18

CONTRADICTION, so no solution.
