Step 1
A system of linear equations usually contains set of two linear equation.
System of linear equations can have unique solution, infinitely many solutions or no solutions.
If lines intersect at one point then there will be unique solution.
If lines coincide with each other then there will be infinitely many solution.
If lines are parallel then there will be no solution.
Suppose if a system has linear equations as:
a1x+b1y+c1=0
a2x+b2y+c2=0
System will have unique solution if:
a1a2b1b2
Step 2
No solution if:
a1a2=b1b2c1c2
Infinitely many solutions if:
a1a2=b1b2=c1c2
Therefore, it is not necessay that each equations in system of linear equations has infinitely many solutions.
Hence, given statement doesn't make any sense.

There I have found from an old tutorial notes from a Linear Algebra course I am taking that I am finding the question rather cumbersome. I haven't come across any elementary matrices problem set in this way before. I have tried to using Gauss-Jordan Elimination to reduce matrix A, whilst performing the row operations on the corresponding elementary matrix. Although, I am unsure if this is the correct approach as the problem notes that RREF calculation is not necessary.
If [A|b] denotes the augmented matrix which corresponds to the system of linear equations
wy=2
w+x+z=5
2xy+4z=1,
determine the 3×3 matrix E such that [EA|Eb] is the reduced row echelon form of [A|b]. Note: You are asked to calculate the matrix E but you are not asked to calculate the reduced row echelon form.
Any help on how to approach this question or determine the matrix E would be highly appreciated.

How to solve this linear pde for y ( x ) (other functions are known and λ is a constant):
d d x ( g ( x ) y ( x ) ) = λ 2 g ( x ) y ( x )
Everything I know about this equation is that it is called the Sturmian equation. I did some research, but the theory, which is for a more general form of the equation, is too hard for me to understand.

Answer true or false to each of the following statements and explain your answers.
a. Polynomial regression equations are useful for modeling more complex curvature in regression equations than can be handled by using the method of transformations.
b. A polynomial regression equation can be estimated using the method of least squares, the same method used in multiple linear regression.
c. The term “linear” in “multiple linear regression” refers to using only first-degree terms in the predictor variables.
