y = - 5 12 x - 5
Compare y=mx+c
m = - 5 12
Slope of the given line is - 5 12 .

Let m' be the slope of line perpendicular to the given line.
If two lines are perpendicular then the product of their slopes is −1.
m m = - 1
m = - 1 m = - 1 - 5 12 = 12 5
m = 12 5
Therefore, the slope of the line perpendicular to the given line is 12 5 .

Find the linear approximation of the function f(x)=4x at a=0

The problem is:
The points (2,-1,-2), (1,3,12), and (4,2,3) lie on a unique plane. Where does this plane cross the z-axis?
I can easily solve this problem by calculus and cross product: the equation of a plane is
Hence, this plane crosses the z-axis at z=5. However, the problem requires to be sold by the system of linear equations transformed into matrix. Even vectors have not been introduces yet. Just a matrix in echelon form and a back substitution. Hence, when I am writing three equations:
I end up with 4 variables to find. What am I missing? Is there one more linear equation possible to add?

we have a system of linear equations as such:
x + 2 y + ( a 1 ) z = 1 x y + z = 0 a x ( a + 3 ) y a z = 3 a x ( a + 2 ) y + 0 z = a 2 5 a 2
and i have to find the solution in R and Z 5 so i have no problem for R i get the matrix
( 1 2 a 1 1 0 1 a 1 0 0 a 0 0 0 a a 2 5 a )
but the questions i have are as follows:
1. Can i use what i found for the augmented matrix and the discussion by parameter a in R to deduce Z 5 ?
2. Or is there some other way i must reduce to row echelon form for Z 5 and then have the discussion for parameter a?
3. If i had an 3x3 or 4x4 system to solve over a low prime Z p 1 and Z p 2 (eg 5 and 7) how would i go about doing it with the matrix gauss elimination?could i use the same augmented matrix and reduce it to row echelon over R and then use that augmented matrix for the rest like above or not?
4. If i recall correctly there was a theorem about the rank of the original matrix and augmented that says something about the number of solutions but i do not recall how that would help me find solutions just eliminate the a's where there is none?

Determine whether each statement makes sense or does not make sense, and explain your reasoning. A system of linear equations in three variables, x, y, and z cannot contain an equation in the form y = mx + b.

Given a system of linear equations Ax=b where
Deduce that a solution x exists if and only if rank(Ab)=rank(A) where Ab is the augmented coefficient matrix of this system
I am having trouble proving the above theorem from my Linear Algebra course, I understand that A|b must reduce under elementary row operations to a form which is consistent but I don't understand exactly why the matrix A|b need have the same rank as A for this to happen.
Please correct me if I am mistaken

While studying linear algebra I encountered the following result regarding the solutions of a non homogeneous system of linear equations: if S o l ( A , b b )
S o l ( A , b b ) = x x + S o l ( A , 0 0 )
Where x is a particular solution.
Then, while studying differential equations, I found that the solutions for
y = a ( x ) y + b ( x )
are all of the form
y = y p + C e A ( x )
Where the last term refers to the solutions of the associate homogeneous equation and y p is a particular solution.
These two concepts seem related to me, but I've not been able to find/think about a satisfying reason, so I'd like to know whether there is actually a relation or not.
I should specify that I've not been able to study properly systems of differential equations of the first order or equations of the n-th order yet, I suspect that the answer is there but I can't be sure. However I'd like to get the complete answer, so if it involves the latter topics it's not a problem.
