given that y = - 2 5 x - 1
at x=−1
y = - 2 5 ( - 1 ) - 1 = 2 5 - 1 = - 3 5
the line perpendicular has a slope, m where
m ( - 2 5 ) = - 1 m = 5 2
the equation is,
y=mx+c and plug in the values of x, y and m to find c
- 3 5 = 5 2 ( - 1 ) + c
- 3 5 = - 5 2 + c
- 3 5 + 5 2 = c 19 10
therefore the equation is y = 5 2 x + 19 10 10 y = 25 x + 19

The reduced row echelon form of a system of linear equations is given. Write the system of equations corresponding to the given matrix. Use x, y. or x, y, z. or x1,x2,x3,x4  x as variables. Determine whether the system is consistent or inconsistent. If it is consistent, give the solution. [100010000002]

For what values of k in this set of linear equations A x = b has no solutions, an infinite number of solutions and a unique solutions?
I know I want to be using Gaussian Elimination here, I've augmented the matrix and I'm perfectly familiar with ERO's and back-solving for systems without unknown constants but this is new to me.
2 2 0 2 0 k 1 1 1 2 k 2
Would I try to be putting this into Row-Echelon form? I have an inkling by playing with it that k = 1 for no solutions and k = 1 for an infinite number of solutions. I can't do the Gaussian steps properly with a k involved to produce some decent working though.
Thank you in advance for any help, solutions or tips. :)

The standard form of a linear firs-order DE is
d y d x + P ( x ) y = Q ( x )
I think the equation is separable if and only if P ( x ) and Q ( x ) are constants, but I'm not sure. (Haven't found any counterexamples but also can't seem to prove it.) Can anyone confirm or deny that this is correct?

For nN and WFn, show that there exists a homogeneous system of linear equations whose solution space is W.
My work:
Since WFn,k=dim(W)dim(Fn). Let's say that {w1,w2,,wk} is a basis of W. Now, construct a matrix A (of size k×n) such that its rows are elements from the basis of W, stacked together. The row space of A is W, so the row space of its row-echelon form is W too. At this point, I'm stuck! I'm trying to come up with a homogeneous system with the help of A, though there may exist other easier ways of approaching this problem.
Could someone show me the light?
P.S. WFn stands for W is a subspace of Fn.
P.P.S. Isn't this equivalent to saying that W is the null-space of some matrix? Can we go ahead along these lines, and construct a matrix P such that Pw=0 for all wW?

Suppose the solutions of a homogeneous system of five linear equations in six unknowns are all multiples of one nonzero solution. Will the system necessarily have a solution for every possible choice of constants on the right sides of the equations? Explain.
