Hello, Thomas!
6. Solve the following system.
. .
We have: .
And then: .
. . .
. . .
Therefore: .
I had said:
Therefore: .
These answers check out perfectly in the three equations.
If there are objections, they should be directed to the problem itself.
Either there are typos in the original statement
. . or the problem was deliberately created to cause confusion.
If [1] is true, then [3] cannot be true.
Also, [2] has no solution in real numbers.
The system is inconsistent and has complex roots.
. . There are no correct answers.
I also agree with your work, I just don't get how we're supposed to answer this question as they are asking for a number (answers are submitted online.) I inputted -3/8 and it said I had the wrong answer.
I've emailed my professor asking about this question.
Thanks for all the help, I'll post back once I have a response from my professor.
