Determine the value(s) of h such that the matrix is the augmented matrix of a consistent linear system?

1 h 2

5 20 8

Ok so I got 2h cannot = - 20

Then divide by 2 and got h cannot equal = -10?

Is this correct?

I have to make it into a

Ooh haha I got -4, does it look correct now?

Its 4 since (20-5h)x2=-2

So it's a augmented matrix of a consistant linear system if h cannot = 4? :D - January 22nd 2013, 05:07 PMSorobanRe: h such that the matrix is augmented...

. .

The system is consistent if its determinant isequal to zero.*not*

If , we have: .

. . Hence: .
