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?
Hello, Oldspice1212!
Determine the value(s) of h such that the matrix is the augmented matrix of a consistent linear system.
. .
The system is consistent if its determinant is not equal to zero.
If , we have: .
. . Hence: .
