To solve this problem, use the quadratic formula. This will be a=1,b=2 and c=8.
The formula substituted is 2+(the square root of 4+32)2
That is 2+62. Simplify that to get x=2 and x=4.

Find the values of k for which the simultaneous equations do not have a unique solution for x , y and z.
Also show that when k = 2 the equations are inconsistent
k x + 2 y + z = 0
3 x + 0 y 2 z = 4
3 x 6 k y 4 z = 14
Using a determinant and setting to zero, then solving the quadratic gives
| k 2 1 3 0 2 3 6 k 4 | = 0
k = 2 , k = 1 2
So far so good, but when subbing 2 for k
2 x + 2 y + z = 0 . . . e q n 1
3 x + 0 y 2 z = 4 . . . e q n 2
3 x + 12 y 4 z = 14 . . . e q n 3
subbing eqn 2 from eqn 3 gives
12 y 2 z = 10
y = 5 + z 6
Subbing for y into eqn 1
2 x + 5 + z 3 z = 0
x = 5 2 z 6
Subbing for y and x into eqn 3
5 2 z 2 + 10 2 z = 14
z = 1 2 , x = 1 a n d y = 3 4
These values for x , y and z seem to prove unique solutions for these equations, yet from the determinant and also the question in the text book should they not be inconsistent?

1) Do equations with 3 variables require at least 3 equation for us to solve without any dependent variable?2) if two equations of such kind equate to zero for eg: a b + 2 c = 0 and 3 a + b + c = 0. Then using the matrice ,there is a method to solve them...explain that method.is there a proof or is it related to Gaussian method which is out of my scope?
