1 3 × 12 1 = 12 3 = 4
So, each friend wants a third of a sandwich and there are twelve friends. Twelve times one third is twelve thirds, or four.

Find the linear approximation of the function f(x)=4x at a=0
Use L(x) to approximate the numbers 3.9 and 3.99 Round to four decimal places

asked 2022-07-10
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?
