Let x be the smallest of these three numbers.
The next even number is, obviously, x+2.
The third one is x+4.

So, x+(x+2)+(x+4)=114 or 3x+6=114
From this equation we derive:
x=36
from which follows:
x+2=38
x+4=40

36,38,40

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

To determine whether a system of linear equations lacks a solution, we can convert it into reduced row echelon form. If the bottom-right value is 1, then the system lacks solutions.
Why is this true? It just seems like a random indicator to me.

The following question seems to me interesting. it gives solution space and required the corresponding system of equation. The question is the following:
Consider the vectors in R 4 defined by
a 1 = ( 1 , 0 , 1 , 2 ), a 2 = ( 3 , 4 , 2 , 5 ), a 3 = ( 1 , 4 , 0 , 9 )
Find a system of homogeneous linear equations for which the space of solutions is exactly subspace of R 4 spanned by the three given vectors.
First i check the linear independence of the given vectors to see form of the generated space. But after determining i only obtained the result that the rank of the coefficient matrix of the corresponding homogeneous system of equations is 2. i obtained this result by rank-nullity theorem. But i can't go further. Please help.
Thanks in advance...

I have just started auditing Linear Algebra, and the first thing we learned was how to solve a system of linear equations by reducing it to row echelon form (or reduced row echelon form). I know how to solve a system of linear equations using determinants, and so the using row echelon form seems to be very inefficient and an easy way to make mistakes.
The lecturer seemed to indicate that this will be useful in the future for something else, but a friend who has a PhD in mathematics said it is totally useless.
Is this true? Is this technique totally useless or is there some "higher mathematics" field/ technique where row echelon form will be useful?

Why is the equation dydx+P(x)y=Q(x) said to be standard form?
Well, I know that in linear differential equation the variable and its derivatives are raised to power of 1 or 0. But I am confused where did the standard form of linear differential equation came form?
That is, why is the equation dydx+P(x)y=Q(x) said to be standard form?
