If V is a nontrivial solution and B A = I, then
V = I V = ( B A ) V = B ( A V ) = B O = O ,
which contradicts V being nontrivial.

𝐴 multiplied on the right by 𝑋 gets 0 and multiplied on the left by 𝐡 gets 𝐼. Multiply on both sides and use associativity, that is, you can first multiply on the right by 𝑋, then on the left by 𝐡, you get the same as: first multiply on the left by 𝐡 then multiply on the right by 𝑋.

Consider the system of equations in real numbers Β  x , y , z Β  satisfying
x 4 Β  x 2 + 1 Β  = Β  y 5 Β  y 2 + 1 Β  = Β  z 6 Β  z 2 + 1
and Β  x + y + z Β  = Β  x y z Β . Find Β  x , y , z Β  ..
I substituted   x , y , z   as   tan ⁑ ( θ 1 )   ,   tan ⁑ ( θ 2 )   ,   tan ⁑ ( θ 3 )  , where
ΞΈ 1 Β  + Β  ΞΈ 2 Β  + Β  ΞΈ 3 Β  = Β  180 ΒΊ Β  Β  .

Suppose I were to be given 3 equations involving variables a, b, and c. The goal of the problem is to find the number of solutions (they do not necessarily have to be real) for the system of equations. Would it be more logical to use Cramer's Rule to solve the linear system or to use basic algebra? A roadmap of the following example problem or the like would be helpful.
A basic system taken from the book would be:
{ 3 a + 4 y βˆ’ z = 4 3 a + 2 b βˆ’ 11 c = βˆ’ 13 a + 2 b + 3 c = 7

You have an 24 cm long string. Examine if you can cut in two parts and create
a) Two squares
b) Two circles
whose total area is 20 cm 2 . (The entire length must be used)
It says the string is cut into 2 parts, and not 2 equal parts.
So for 2 squares: The sum of perimeters will be 24 cm. That's,
4 l 1 + 4 l 2 = 24 and l 1 2 + l 2 2 = 20
Similarly, For 2 circles:
2 Ο€ r 1 + 2 Ο€ r 2 = 24 and Ο€ r 1 2 + Ο€ r 2 2 = 20
I get 2 equations and 2 unknowns, how do I solve these equations?
