For the following augmented matrix, I need to determine for what value of h its consistant Because the last line has 2+h = 0, the only value that h can be is -2 If I'm wrong can you explain why

You have x_2 = (-3 - x_2)/h x_1 + h*(x_2) = -3 (2 + h)*x_2 = 0 [(-h - 2)*(x + 3)]/h = 0 Solve for h; h = -2 As you demonstrated, in your case it's easy to eyeball it.
