Homo Trouble [UNSOLVED]
There are 2 questions I can't simply get the answer to. The fact that in the first problem the equations are equivalent really trouble me. How do we solve these? I appreciate every help in advance! :)

Attempt
NEW UPDATE FOR PROBLEM 1: I eliminate an equation because it's linearly dependent but then I'm left with one equation 4 variables.

How do I go on from here?

Apparently, it's unsolvable?
