    Code:
    (2x     + (-2       + (0        = (10
      0         0          2y          6 
      2)       12)        -5y)         2x+12-5y)


    Please retype this so we have a chance of understanding what is meant

    I am guessing:

    [2x, 0, 2]' + [-2, 0, 12]' + [0, 2y, -5y]' = [10, 6, 2x+12-5y]'

    Rewrite this as a set of equations, one for each component:

    2x-2+0=10

    0+0+2y=6

    2+12-5y=2x+12-5y

    Now solve this system (if it has a soution that is)
