Paul has a job raking leaves for a neighbor. He makes $7.70 an hour, plus $.45 for each bag he fills. Last Saturday he worked five hours and made a total of $39.85. How many bags of leaves did he fill?

We can answer this question by forming an equation.

Let the number of bags be x.

Paul is paid $0.45 for each bag.

So the money from the bags, plus the hourly rate adds up $39.85

$0.45x+5\times 7.70=39.85$

$0.45x+38.50=39.85$

$0.45x=39.85-38.50$

$0.45x=1.35$

$x=\frac{1.35}{0.45}$

$x=3$

Consider a system of linear equations $Ax=b$ where $A$ is an $n\times n$ matrix. Suppose that b is a non-zero vector such that ${A}^{t}b=0$. Which is true about any such system?

I am given 5 choices for what this means: The system has infinitely many solutions, is inconsistent, is consistent, is over determined, or is in row echelon form.

Unfortunately, I have yet to completely rule out a single one. I don't think it can be over determined, because then wouldn't the equations be undefined based on the fact that if there were more equations than unknowns then $Ax$ would not be possible. I don't recall any theorems discussing whether the system is consistent or inconsistent using the transposition and b, which stems to the infinitely many solutions.

Express the equations of the lines

r · (i −j) + 7 = 0,r · (i + 3j) − 5 = 0 in parametric forms and hence find the position

vector of their point of intersection.
