Davey reads 45 pages in an hour. Sally reads 55 pages per hour. If Davey begins to read at 2 PM and Sally starts to read at 2:40 PM, at what time will they be reading the exact same page?

Davey started reading first.
This means that at 2.40pm, Davey would have read 30 pages

( 40 60 45 )

while Sally, 0 pages. Sally read 10 pages more than Davey per hour, this means that she will catch up with Davey at the 3rd hour after 2.40pm.

Therefore, 3 hours after 2.40pm will be 5.40pm.

I have a system of linear equations of the form
j=1n2xjkijZ,i=1,,m
or equivalently
2KxZn
where K is an integer matrix with orthogonal rows and columns, such that the GCD of every row and every column is 1, and x is a vector of real numbers.
what are the constraints on x?

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. :)
