    the question itself does not appear to make sense if only lamda and mu are to be solved. equation (1) seems to be useless here.

    You have misunderstood the type of question being asked in this thread. The initial reply assumed (quite reasonably) that the values of mu and lambda for which the system has an infinite number of solutions was required.

    This question is incomplete. What is meant to happen with these equations? Do you want:

    Infinite solutions? Unique solution? No solution?


    The question is to find the
    -Infinite solution
    -Unique solution
    -Infinite number of solution

    Well, you have been told the values when there are an infinite number of solutions. I believe that with a little thought there is more than enough given in this thread to address the question of when there is a unique solution ....

    Ask whoever is giving you these questions to provide reference material. (If you're being asked to answer questions like this I find it hard to believe you would have no notes or reference material on it).

    Can't you just google your topic then ? There is loads of stuff just on Wikipedia, and it looks like you have access to the internet ...

    These sorts of questions test your understanding of systems of linear equations. You can't just use Google and get pages telling you about all the different types of questions that can be asked, you have to actually understand the basic theory behind solving systems of linear equations and the types of solutions that are possible.

    Regardless of what mode of study your enrolled in, surely you get notes. And those notes would include the theory that is required to understand how to tackle questions like this, or at least sufficient theory to provide you with relevant key words that you can use for a Google search. It is not the role of MHF to provide on-line tuition. The role of MHF is to provide help with specific questions. That help has been amply given in this thread.

    Thread closed.
